Christ the King Hospital

Sierra Leone has one of the highest maternal and child morbidity and mortality in the world. The majority of children suffer from preventable childhood diseases like malaria, respiratory infections diarrhea, anemia and malnutrition. Many do not live to celebrate their fifth birthday. Women of child-bearing age die mainly from anemia, hemorrhage, sepsis/infections, hypertensive disorders and other causes. Limited access to quality health service, poor feeding and hygienic practices among others have been as some of the underlying factors for the high child and maternal morbidity and mortality rates in Sierra Leone. Christ the King Hospital provides health care services to address the specific needs of women and children.
