Last week Sierra Leone celebrated one year of free healthcare. This is a huge milestone for an African nation considering the fact that even richer nations in Africa have not been able to provide free healthcare. In 2008, Sierra Leone was one of the worst places to give birth as 1 in 8 women died while giving birth or during pregnancy.

This is the start of something new and I hope they continue to progress!!!
