Sierra Leone is a small country in West Africa with a population of over six million people. In 2014, Sierra Leone declared a state of emergency to tackle the deadly Ebola outbreak in West Africa, which persisted into 2016, killing 3,956 people in Sierra Leone.
The catastrophic Ebola epidemic that began in 2014 aggravated Sierra Leone’s already weak medical supply system. Project Last Mile was invited by USAID to partner with the Sierra Leone Ministry of Health and Sanitation.
We are leveraging the Coca-Cola System’s expertise in talent resource management, supply chain logistics and distribution to strengthen the medical supply chain and help Sierra Leone recover from the devastating impacts of the Ebola epidemic.
