Challenge

Liberia's health care institutions face severe shortages in health care professionals and appropriately skilled administrators and staff. This has resulted in the lack of access to healthcare in the rurual areas of the country.This shortage has adversely affected the effort of public health to fight HIV/AIDS infection, child and maternal mortality. According to United Nation’s Children Fund (UNICEF), maternal mortality is by far the largest difference between poor and rich countries.

Solution

The project will renovate an existing building to be setup as teaching facility and a clinic to train nurses and midwives, while providing health services. The program will underwrite a large portion of students' education, making it affordable.

Long-Term Impact

The program will improve women and children health by producing trained healthcare providers in the country with knowledge and skills in maternal and children health. The program is expected to reduce maternal and infant mortality rate by 70% .
