The Government of Sierra Leone has received grant for the ‘Protecting and Improving Public Health Globally: Building and Strengthening Public Health Impact, Systems, Capacity, and Security in Sierra Leone’ programme, from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The objective of the programme and component pillars is geared towards Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA) priorities, including surveillance, workforce development, laboratory services, antimicrobial resistance, and emergency management.
The programme is being implemented by the Integrated Health Projects Administration Unit (IHPAU) for the Ministry of Health and Sanitation (MOHS).
As a committed partner to the Government of Sierra Leone, Crown Agents serves as the fiduciary agent for the CDC, MoHS and IHPAU in the fiduciary and funds management of this programme.
With hands-on budgetary support to IHPAU, Crown Agents facilitates the day-to-day project management to help drive the programme’s success. Additionally, our operational oversight on procurement, inventory and fleet management ensures the continuity and strengthening where necessary, of IHPAU’s capacity in relation to the CDC award to the MOHS.
