Commitments

More than 86 percent of girls ages 15 to 19 in Sierra Leone have never used contraceptives, and thirty percent of them will have given birth by the time they are 19. The country, a commitment maker since 2012,  is still recovering from 10 years of a brutal civil war and two Ebola outbreaks. However, these challenges have not stopped efforts to increase the number of women and girls with access to family planning services, reduce stock out rates of commodities, and focus efforts on adolescents and young people.  The Government of Sierra Leone sees family planning as playing a significant role in building resilience in a country that needs a healthy population to thrive.
