Photo of the Week: Rebooting the Public Health System in Liberia
Ebola has badly impacted public health services in Liberia. Many medical facilities closed at some point during the outbreak after dozens of health personal died fighting it. Most facilities are still providing reduced services compared to before the outbreak and the population struggles to access medical care for non-Ebola related diseases.
MSF operations in Liberia are therefore shifting towards supporting the public health system. MSF opened a paediatric hospital in Monrovia on 23 March and has been assisting JDJ Memorial Hospital as well as 23 clinics in safely resuming activities.
