The IOM Health and Humanitarian Border Management (HHBM) project currently in Phase II of operations, began on 17 November 2014 to monitor the Exit and Entry Health Screening (EEHS) SOP at Lungi International Airport (FNA) in partnership with the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Sierra Leonean Ministry of Health and Sanitation, Port Health, the Sierra Leone Civil Aviation Authority, the Sierra Leone Airport Authority and the International Security Advisory Team. Since that time it has achieved 100% coverage across all UN and commercial flights to Sierra Leone and as of June 2015 has screened over 60,000 passengers. The Airport project team of 25 monitors and support staff which works in shifts 24/7 has also developed a training curriculum for Airport personnel, a pocket guide on the EEHS SOP and trained over 300 Immigration, Police and Health personnel.
