Joe Kargpo and Ibrahim Kamara working at the X-Ray room at the EMERGENCY Surgical and Paediatric Centre in Goderich - Freetown (July 20, 2016). This Emergency Hospital is the most frequented hospital for emergency cases. Every accident from Freetown and sometimes from the outside is being brought in here. The treatment is free.
The EMERGENCY project is funded by the European Commission.
EMERGENCY has designed this project upon request of its local partners, WARDC and PGRMI. The project's strategy is based on a comprehensive approach involving Non State Actors and Local Authorities in order to improve the efficiency of the health sector and to establish good intersectorial practices in the field of health and education. EMERGENCY puts in place a structured system for civil society organizations, local authorities and government institutions where everyone can contribute to improving health service delivery and education standards at the WARD area. It will also deliver promotion campaigns which will address children, teachers and communities about the availability of the three national health programs (FHCI, NMCP and SFP) and about how to access basic services by informing them about their rights.
