The Statistical, Economic and Social Research and Training Centre for Islamic Countries (SESRIC) and Statistics Sierra Leone (SSL) of the Republic of Sierra Leone signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) to facilitate collaboration and cooperation between both institutions within the framework of the project titled “Integration of the ‘Tobacco Questions for Surveys (TQS)’ into the National Surveys in Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Member States”.
The MoA was signed on 9 August 2016 by H.E. Amb. Musa KULAKLIKAYA, Director General of SESRIC, and Mr. Mohamed King KOROMA, Statistician General of SSL of the Republic of Sierra Leone.
During the implementation period, SSL will integrate the TQS into National Survey on Tobacco Use Behavioral Survey (TUBS), to harmonize and standardize the monitoring of key tobacco control indicators for evidence-based policy making and promote sustainability through frequent collection of the tobacco use data.
