The Urgent Need for a National Electronic Health (National eHealth) Strategy for Liberia. A Lesson from the Ebola Outbreak

Last week I was part of a four-man delegation that attended the West Africa Regional Workshop on the Development of National eHealth Strategy in Abuja, Nigeria.

It (the workshop) provided participating West African countries insight into the development and implementation of a National eHealth strategy.
