EU Committed To Assist Liberia Build Post-Ebola Health System

By Wilfred Gortor

MONROVIA, November 14 (LINA)-The European Union (EU) has affirmed its commitment to provide support to the rebuilding of Liberia’s post Ebola healthcare system.

EU Ebola Coordinator and Commissioner for Humanitarian and Crisis Management, Christos Stylianides said it is necessary to reconstruct the health systems which were overwhelmed by the Ebola virus.

He made the commitment at a press conference held at the EU head office in Manba Point in Monrovia on Friday.

The EU envoy cited that it is critical to think about the period after the Ebola virus is defeated by examining various methods to strengthen the healthcare system, noting “without a long term view we cannot fully succeed.”

Meanwhile,  Stylianides has commended health workers in the country for their dedication to duty which, according to him, has contributed immensely to the gains being made in the containment of the Ebola virus.

Stylianides then cautioned government and partners to be more flexible in their response since the nature of the virus is gradually changing.

“We must not lose sight of the threat, we must remain on high alert as Ebola remains a clear and present danger,” Stylianides stated.
