Entrenching person-centred life-stages care to advance the right to health in Sierra Leone


Freetown – Twenty-five-year-old Yainkain Sesay is expecting her first child. Before her first antenatal visit to King Harman Maternity and Child Hospital in Freetown, Sierra Leone’s capital city, she was anxious. “When I visited the hospital before I was pregnant, it was hard because I couldn’t afford to pay for all the treatment,” she says. But when she returned this time, she was pleasantly surprised. “The health services here are good and I feel safe. They don’t ask for money and they provide good treatment. Pregnant women like me are treated well.”
