Give to... skilled healthcare workers in Sierra Leone

Target reached
from €8,500 (158%)

Good healthcare requires skilled specialists. Sierra Leone is in urgent need of local healthcare workers who can also serve as health professions educators: professionals who are able to train others. The country currently lacks the requisite training opportunities, which is why SHE Collaborates is working with local partners to build a community of practice of healthcare experts who can develop innovative educational courses. Good education will ultimately improve healthcare in one of the world’s poorest countries.

Will you contribute to local healthcare and help Sierra Leone’s ambitious professionals take the next step?
