Health For All Coalition Sierra Leone (HFAC-SL) has on Tuesday 17th April 2012, revealed plans to clean all Referral Hospitals in Sierra Leone. The move is to ensure that all the hospitals are decent prior to 51st Independence Anniversary celebration. This disclosure was made by the Director Charles Mambu, during a press conference in Freetown. He called on Government to assist them with logistics in order to successfully execute the exercise. He said this will be the coalition’s second nationwide cleaning exercise conducted in Hospitals. Mr. Mambu further revealed that the move is also part of the coalition’s activities to mark the third year of the country’s free health care policy and world Malaria day in Sierra Leone. According to him, the exercise will commence on Tuesday 24th April 2012 and lasted until all Government referral hospitals are cleaned. He said the move will also complement Government, the Ministry of Health and Sanitation, World Health Organization, and development partners’ efforts to promote malaria eradication campaign in Sierra Leone.
Director Mambu further used the forum as an opportunity to call on Government to ensure the reintroduction of public health and sanitation inspectorates in the country.
