US$38K Triage Dedicated in Bomi County

Rotary Clubs in Liberia and Rotary Districts 1640, 1670 and 1790 of France have dedicated a US$38,000 triage at the Suehn Community Clinic in Bomi County. Triage is a process of prioritizing sick or injured people for treatment, according to the seriousness of the condition or injury.

The one constructed in Bomi County was supported by the Rotary Foundation International (RFI) and was built with the support of Rotary Clubs of Monrovia, Sinkor, Gbarnga and Harper in partnership with the Ministry of Health (MOH) following the outbreak of the Ebola virus disease (EVD) in 2014.
