‘Breast Cancer Curable’

The Chief Medical Doctor at the Hope for Women International Clinic, Dr. Wilhemina Jallah, has called on Liberians suffering from several types of cancer to take advantage of the humanitarian health services at her clinic as the disease can be cured with early detection.

Dr. Jallah said lack of money should not be the cause of people dying with sicknesses that are curable. ‘’We are here for everyone, mainly the poor people who cannot afford to pay for medical services,’’ she said.

Health Facilities Operate Poorly 2 Years after Ebola

More than two years after the world’s worst Ebola outbreak began in West Africa, health facilities in Liberia are still struggling to operate due to the lack of running water and functioning toilets, sanitation charity WaterAid said on Friday.

In the West Point slum near Monrovia, which was quarantined during the Ebola epidemic, health workers say water shortages and overflowing toilets are putting patients at risk of infection and disease, according to WaterAid.

Koreans to Train Health Practitioners in Infectious Disease Management

As the Ministry of Health and its main partners work toward building a resilient health sector following the outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus disease (EVD), others have decided to help in revamping the nation’s health sector so that it can be able to withstand any outbreak in the future.

The latest commitment in this direction has been made by the Korean Ambassador to Liberia, Mr. Noh Kyu-duk, who has said that plans are underway to train some of Liberia’s health workers in infectious disease management.
