Health Sector Gains Strength

The Ministry of Health along with its stakeholders are now taking steps toward building a resilient health sector following the deadly Ebola virus disease in 2014 and 2015.

One of such steps is the launch of a United States Agency for International Development (USAID)-sponsored Maternal and Child Survival Program (MCSP).

The program which is expected to be a two-year USAID-funded activity is intended to support the Liberian government’s commitment to strengthen the country’s health workforce through the new MCSP/ Human Resources for Health (HRH) project.
