Since 2016, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in close collaboration with the Sierra Leone Ministry of Health and Sanitation (MoHS), has provided technical leadership and initial funding to establish a Child Health and Mortality Prevention Surveillance (CHAMPS) site in Makeni, Sierra Leone. The CHAMPS network’s objective is to reduce child deaths and stillbirths in high mortality settings in Africa and Asia. Using advanced sampling and laboratory methods, the CHAMPS network aims to determine the causes of under-five deaths and stillbirths through epidemiologic surveillance, and provide the evidence base for prevention interventions. The site has already contributed to building surveillance, laboratory and research capacity in the country after the devastating Ebola epidemic, and will increasingly be an essential component of efforts in the country to improve maternal and child health.
