THE STORY:

“Ebola was a symptom of a fractured health system” – Paul Farmer

The Ebola crisis of 2014-15 destroyed an already weak healthcare system in Liberia. Hit especially hard was maternal and child health. During the Ebola crisis maternal and child health services suffered because:

  1. No-touch policy: limiting the ability of healthcare workers to do their job and assist patients
  2. Death of healthcare workers: causing a lack of trained help in hospitals
  3. Dangers of bringing children/pregnant women to hospital: for fear of contracting the disease

The result is that there was a 50% increase in maternal and infant mortality during and after the Ebola crisis.

Partners in Health is fundraising to reverse this trend. We aim to strengthen health systems, train health professionals, and generate new knowledge to develop a sustainable healthcare system in Liberia. A successful campaign will enable the health center to build space for more beds, hire midwives, screen pregnant women for HIV, purchase Mama Baby kits and more.

Help us make this a reality by donating to our campaign to support maternal and child health in Liberia!
