Our impact

  • During the Ebola epidemic, infection prevention and control practices were improved at over 200 facilities across seven counties through provision of critical supplies, infrastructure improvements and training. As a result, facilities are now better prepared to respond to potential outbreaks, and Liberians are receiving high-quality services in safe environments.
  • In the post-Ebola period, health services were restored in 77 health facilities across three counties. As a result, the number of health facility deliveries doubled to 4,967.
  • Support to the Liberia Association of Medical Laboratory Technologists (LAMLT) led to improved quality and increased sustainability of Liberia’s lab services through the development of pre-service education quality improvement standards and LAMLT licensure and accreditation processes, for the first time ever in Liberia. These standards are now used in 100% of lab schools, improving the quality of laboratory pre-service education and producing a better equipped and fit-for-purpose medical laboratory technologist health workforce.
  • After the introduction of low-dose, high-frequency learning for quality improvement of maternal and newborn care in five (50%) teaching hospitals affiliated with midwifery pre-service education institutions, the hospitals showed an average improvement of 40% in meeting Ministry of Health quality standards, subsequently doubling the number of facility deliveries in one year at these facilities.
