Children's Ebola Recovery Assessment: Sierra Leone

Nearly half the population of Sierra Leone is under the age of 18 and the impact of the Ebola crisis on their lives has been far-reaching - yet to date, there has not been a formal process for children to outline their own priorities for recovery to decision-makers.

Plan International, Save the Children and World Vision International, with the support of UNICEF, have consulted over 1,100 girls and boys aged 7 to 18 from 9 districts about the impact of Ebola, which has killed more than 3,500 people in Sierra Leone.

The report's findings demonstrate the diverse and inter-connected impact of the outbreak on children and reveals their views on what they need and want for recovery.
