MSH has been working in Liberia for over a decade. Our past and ongoing experience in the country exemplifies our strategy of working holistically, using top-down and bottom-up approaches to focus the health system on improved outcomes.
Through the USAID Collaborative Support for Health (CSH) program, MSH provides technical assistance to the government of Liberia at the central and county levels to strengthen its health system to meet the daily health needs of Liberians and become more resilient in the face of emergencies. Specific initiatives under the CSH project include strengthening the health workforce, improving data systems and financial management, laying the foundation for universal health care, strengthening leadership and governance, advancing quality of care, and ensuring availability of medicine. CSH also assists the Ministry of Public Works to improve management of its infrastructure, as a reliable water supply is key to maintaining good health.
The CSH program provides training and technical assistance to support the key priorities of the Ministry of Health National Health and Social Welfare Policy and Plan 2011 – 2021 as well as the post-Ebola Health Sector Investment Plan.
The Leadership, Management, and Governance National Malaria Control Program Capacity-Building Project (LMG/NMCP) is also working in Liberia. The two-year goal of the project is to build the capacity of Liberia's NMCP to effectively implement national malaria strategies. The project provides direct technical assistance to support the NMCP to effectively manage its financial and material resources; to develop and direct policy and norms for the implementation and surveillance of the national malaria control strategy; and mobilize stakeholders to participate in national malaria control coordination and implementation efforts.
