Guinea is a country in Western Africa with a population of over 11 million people and a life expectancy of 54 years (male) and 56 years (female). Guinea’s health system is structured around providing primary care at the district level, but the epidemic of Ebola virus starting in 2013 severely exacerbated existing stress points in the provision of care. With the support of the UHC Partnership Guinea has adopted a National Health Policy in 2014, and is implementing a National Health Development Plan 2015-2024. The UHC Partnership is continuing its support to strengthen the leadership of the Ministry of Health and improve coordination mechanisms between the government and technical and financial partners in health in the form of regular coordination committee meetings. You can access important country documents by clicking here.
