Chief Medical Officer Expresses MOHS Readiness to improve Status of Emergency Obstetric and Newborn Care in Sierra Leone.

Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Brima Kargbo Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Brima Kargbo

The Chief Medical Officer was addressing a one day Consultative conference on the status of Emergency obstetric and newborn care facilities in Sierra Leone held at the National Stadium Atlantic hall in Freetown.

Dr. Brima Kargbo reiterated the need to revisit the structure for the survival of the vulnerable children of Sierra Leone with a view to providing quality maternal and newborn care in all health facilities in the country.


The Ministry of Health in its efforts to reducing maternal and newborn deaths, Dr. Kargbo said is poised to ensuring that the key enablers for the compliance of all health facilities is accomplished with the provision of the basic service during the Ministry’s Post Ebola Recovery Plan to reduce the high incidence of infant and maternal deaths. “Before the launch of the Free Health Care there was high incidence of maternal and child deaths but the launching by President Koroma in 2010 made a significant dramatic turn when pregnant women, lactating mothers and children under five years in their high numbers accessing the facilities. The gains made by the Ministry with the Free Health Care Initiative, Dr. Kargbo told his audience then became a shattered hope for the future with the Ebola outbreak.

This shattered hope for the future the Chief Medical Officer said now poses a challenge for the Ministry and its partners in the six to nine months Recovery Plan.

The lessons learnt from the Ebola outbreak Dr. Kargbo assured his audience would be used to ensure health workers and patients’ safety in all health facilities are executed towards building a resilient health system across the country.
