The Voiceless Sierra Leoneans were bemused and taken aback by President Ernest Bai Koroma’s late proactive stands when he addressed the nation regarding the Ebola scourge. Yes, they were! The 30th July, Midnight address on the Ebola virus by President Koroma was action oriented but untimely. It was very untimely because President Koroma who is the ‘Father of the Nation’ knows that Sierra Leone is not only in a crisis state but the country has been put under attack, a stressful attack indeed.
Health care in all developing countries particularly Sierra Leone is a massive challenge, but an achievable one. What’s needed, according to The Voiceless Sierra Leoneans, is the will, and the funding. Despite the numerous challenges in the health sector, President Ernest Bai Koroma is credited for his Free Health Care Initiative with a full gear to achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) 4 and 5 respectively.
