ABERDEEN WOMENS CENTER
The Aberdeen Women’s Centre in Freetown provides the only comprehensive fistula repair service in Sierra Leone and has the capacity to treat up to 300 fistula patients per year.
The Centre takes a holistic approach to the care of women and children and in 2010 opened its own maternity unit to provide the highest standards of maternal healthcare for the women of Sierra Leone, thus preventing the occurrence of obstetric fistula in the first instance and ensuring a safe environment for childbirth.
The AWC runs an outpatient children’s clinic which treats more than 12,000 children each year, providing a primary care facility for children in the surrounding community aged 12 and under, including immunisations and health education.
The Aberdeen Women’s Centre is a self-contained facility and more than 90% of the staff are Sierra Leone nationals.
