Sierra Leone is a country courageously struggling to recover from the effects of more than two decades of a devastating civil war and the Ebola outbreak. The country has also one of the highest maternal mortality rates in the world with more than 1,000 maternal deaths per 100, 000 births.

The Country’s past challenges have impacted negatively on the infrastructure, limiting the capability to respond to crises and health emergencies and resulting in a comatose first response infrastructure.

The World Bank funded project (grant of $13 million USD) aims to release a fully staffed, equipped and functional prehospital ambulance service providing citizens of Sierra Leone with prompt, safe and effective access to healthcare in times of urgent needs and enabling the Country to leverage existing healthcare infrastructure and local expertise to maximum advantage.

CRIMEDIM is using its experience in prehospital care and emergency medicine to train local nurses and drivers who will equip the 200 ambulances of the National Emergency Medical Service (NEMS).

CRIMEDIM is now represented in Sierra Leone by the Training Manager Federico Merlo who works by distance with Luca Ragazzoni (CRIMEDIM project lead) and Simone Pulvirenti who coordinate the deployment of several CRIMEDIM trainers from all over the world.
