MSH Selected to Help Rebuild Health Services in Post-Conflict Liberia
CAMBRIDGE, MA — Management Sciences for Health (MSH) has been chosen to participate in a partnership to lead the Rebuilding Basic Health Services (RBHS) Project in Liberia. Led by the JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc., the five-year, $47 million program will support the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare in rebuilding public health services in seven counties of Liberia after the country’s devastating civil war.
The USAID-funded project will be the flagship program in Liberia and will represent the key model for post-conflict reconstruction efforts in health across the world. MSH’s scope of work includes helping the country institute performance-based financing as a standard practice in extending healthcare, supporting and building the capacity of local organizations and health facility staff to manage and lead the health, to ensure that quality health services are rendered at all levels, and to create models of governance for health services to sustain them beyond the project period.
Johns Hopkins University/Center for Communications Programs and JHPIEGO comprise the partnership along with MSH.
