Country-specific presentation slides display the findings from the Cigarette Tax Scorecard.


Overall Score

Sierra Leone does not score well compared to the average score of countries in its region, income group, or the global average. Sierra Leone would benefit from making significant improvements to its cigarette tax system.

Component Score

Sierra Leone scores poorly in all four component scores. Sierra Leone would greatly benefit from increasing cigarette prices, reducing cigarette affordability, increasing tax share of price, and improving tax structure.

Scores Over Time

Sierra Leone's overall scores increased before falling from 2014 to 2020. In that time, the tax structure became more effective, while the cigarette price and affordability change scores fluctuated.
