When the hospital first opened in 2012 the infant mortality rate was 147/1000, in 2020 it was 108/1000 (UNICEF). Sierra Leone is still ranked as having one of the highest infant mortality rates in the world. With the support of you, our wonderful donors we have been able to help reduce these statistics.
More than a hospital – a way forward for the community!

Fast approaching the second year of operation
We are fast approaching the second year of operation of the Bo Children’s Hospital. During the last 18 months we have seen a steady growth in patients while significant steps have been made in transitioning the management of the hospital to the local community. In its first year (April 2012 -2013) some 2000 patients were seen and only 1 death was reported. The second year has seen a steady flow of patients attending the outpatient clinic and the 11-bed ward being fully utilised for admissions.
