The Ministry of Health and Sanitation in collaboration with partners will hold its first National Health Summit at the Bintumani International Conference Centre, Freetown, Sierra Leone from 7-9 April 2022.

The theme of this year’s Health Summit: Transforming Healthcare Delivery towards Universal Health Coverage

The Ministry of Health and Sanitation, Dr. Austin Demby at a press launched in the Ministry of Information and Communications said that health care is very important to all and it is essential in the quest to make Sierra Leone enviable. He adds that the purpose of the health summit is to transform the health service delivery in meeting the Universal Health Coverage. He calls on all Sierra Leoneans to support the process in strengthening the health care delivery. He adds that based on the assessment they have conducted, maternal mortality and infant mortality rates have been reduced. He reaffirms by stating that, in accordance with the country’s health vision a lot needs to be done. He said that the universal health coverage makes it clearer that no one should be left behind. He went on to say that they are no longer looking at diseases but outcomes in accordance with the global goals that are set up for 2030. He said that the summit will bring international partners onboard to assist with concrete steps. He continued by saying that the summit will be done together with an award ceremony to recognize those that are contributing immensely in support of service delivery and leadership in the health outcomes.

“At the end, it will help the ministry to prioritize and coordinate its activities well in meeting the Universal Health Coverage and health outcomes,” he said, adding by thanking health care workers that are working in remote areas.  He recognizes the support of Africell Mobile Company and other partners in the health service delivery.
