In 2015-2016, CDC helped develop Sierra Leone’s Integrated Disease Surveillance and Response (IDSR) system to increase weekly disease reporting by health facilities.

This information helps nurses at the Sela Kafta Maternal Child Heath Post in Kambia District rapidly identify new infectious diseases and mobilize resources to respond to potential outbreaks.

Reach every child

Reaching every child

Getting quality vaccines from well-trained health workers to people who need them

CDC plays a critical role in building relationships with international partners and helping in the effort to improve and support innovative approaches such as the effort to assess Reaching Every Child in Jordan. This means that children in high-risk areas within the country continually receive adequate care. Without eradicating polio, each year more than 200,000 children could become paralyzed. A child’s right to healthcare should never be sacrificed, yet each year about 21.8 million children do not get the necessary vaccines.
