This photo essay shows the George Brook Community Health Center in Freetown. Renovations at the health center were supported by the project and included repairing a leaking roof; constructing hand washing stations, incinerators, and placenta and sharp pits; improving plumbing and light in the delivery rooms, and providing delivery kits and other medical equipment. The project trained health care workers on infection prevention and control; labor, antenatal, and surveillance services; care for Ebola survivors; and maternal, newborn, and child health.
