sanitation services in rural and urban areas in Sierra
Leone. It describes the legal and institutional framework

including the factors affecting the efficiency of use of
resources, and makes recommendations. Water supply includes
the supply, distribution, and usage of water for drinking,
food preparation, and hygiene. Sanitation is defined as the

hygienic practices. The review covers the period from 2002

upheavals. Since 2002, democracy and a stable environment
for development have been re-established in the country,
especially since the 2007 presidential elections. Sierra
