Description: The purpose of this NOFO is to build a more resilient health care system in Sierra Leone through strengthening sustainability of Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA) objectives to prevent, detect, and respond to disease threats across the country. CDC seeks to continue working collaboratively with partners and other United States Government (USG) agencies to achieve specific goals in three main strategic areas: prevent avoidable epidemics, detect threats early, and respond rapidly and effectively to potential events of concern for public health and health security. CDC, through this NOFO, will continue to leverage and complement the strengths and resources of multisectoral and multilateral partners in Sierra Leone in the following activities: build and improve country capacity and leadership in the prevention, early detection, and provide an effective response to infectious disease threats, with, a special emphasis on four technical areas that serve as a platform for public health emergencies and health security: surveillance, laboratory systems, workforce development, and emergency response management. The outcomes will be to reach sustainable JEE scores and transfer assistance activities increasingly to the government and the National Public Health Agency, which is currently under development and should play a growing role in leading emergencies and health security in the country.
