More people have died from Ebola than of Ebola in West Africa. The Ebola crisis that struck down in Liberia weakened an already deteriorating health system. Despite the disease itself taking lives, more people died from fear of contracting the disease and thus refraining from going to the hospital. But even the patients that did manage to get to the hospital were met up with understaffed and under sourced facilities. The crisis led to a 50% increase in child and maternal mortality. Partners in Health is fundraising to advocate for maternal and child care and aims to reduce the mortality by creating sustainable health systems in Liberia. The money fundraised will go towards strengthening the healthcare systems in place, training new professionals, and generating new knowledge that will sustain the people of Liberia. The fundraiser will also aid PIH in improving the Pleebo Health Center in Liberia, a facility overwhelmed with 3 hour wait times and hundreds of patients a day. Improvements would go towards increasing the available beds, screening pregnant women for HIV, hiring midwives and allowing women to stay in postpartum beds for longer. Partners in Health is dedicated to advocating health care as a human right. Help us make a difference!
