Medical Assistance Sierra Leone
Medical Assistance Sierra Leone was established in 2003 with the aim of supporting access to health care and urgent medical treatment for communities and individuals in Sierra Leone. Sierra Leone is the poorest country in the world (UNDP 2004), with high infant mortality and globally the worst maternal mortality rates. The conflict, wide scale social disruption, population displacement, economic collapse, poverty and very poor living conditions along with limited access to quality health services are the major factors contributing to the current high mortality and morbidity. Life expectancy is just 39 years for men and 42 years for women. Those with rare and complex conditions face little prospect of getting treatment. Sierra Leone’s health infrastructure clearly requires support at all levels. However there are specific strategic areas where an input of resources can be expected to begin to save lives, improve health and well-being and better enable individuals to meet the vast development challenges facing their families and communities. MASL focuses on three areas of work: Reducing maternal mortality, Reducing child mortality and Facilitating access to treatment for those with rare and specialist medical conditions.
