Marie Stopes Sierra Leone

According to their website (see here):

Marie Stopes Sierra Leone opened its first clinic in 1986 and is now the largest specialised family planning organisation in the country, providing almost half of all family planning services in Sierra Leone.

They provide a full range of high quality, affordable and client-focused sexual and reproductive health services to women, men and young people. They provide the majority of long-acting and permanent methods (LAPMs) of contraception, such as the implant which they introduced in 2008. Over half of these are LAPMs delivered to hard to reach communities in rural parts of the country and urban slums.

They work closely with the Ministry of Health and Sanitation, and are a key partner in the Government’s ‘Free Health Care’ strategy.

They have 12 clinics and 13 outreach teams travelling to hard to reach parts of the country. In 2012 they launched a boat-based outreach team to bring services to coastal and riverine communities with extremely limited access to healthcare services. Their 130 social franchisees, operating under Marie Stopes International’s BlueStar brand, are expanding service delivery and contributing to national health goals by engaging private providers.
