MOH Official Calls For Strong Post-Ebola Health Care System

By Wilfred Gortor

MONROVIA, October 13 (LINA) -Assistant Health Minister for Curative Services, Saye Baawo, says it requires collective effort and diligence for Liberia to develop a vibrant post- Ebola health system.

He said the country’s post-Ebola health system should be firmly established so that it can respond to national emergencies such as the current Ebola crisis and the restoration of regular health facilities that will guarantee health security for all Liberians.

He made the statement at the Ministry of Information daily Ebola update held at the ministry on Monday. 

He provided updates on achievements made so far by health authorities to restore the country’s healthcare delivery system during the Ebola crisis.

The Minister said the country was taken unawares by the wave of the deadly Ebola virus, something that led to the abrupt collapse of the healthcare system.

He noted that doctors were incapacitated to combat the virus because of the lack of available materials in the health system and danger associated with combating the hemorrhagic virus.

“As a country and people we need to apply collective efforts and use the current Ebola crisis as an example that should necessitate the development of a strong health system which will be prepared to battle any kind of disease outbreak that threatens the nation,” the minister said.

According to Baawo, the Ministry of Health in collaboration with some international partners, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and WHO, has provided training in prevention and control for health practitioners both in the public and private sector to tackle the spread of the virus.

The minister then called on Liberians to rally around the government by adhering to the measures instituted to combat the Ebola disease, adding “if Liberia must eradicate the Ebola disease, every citizen must contribute to the fight by supporting the national effort to purge the disease.
