US Gov’t Committed To Global Human Rights, Freedoms

MONROVIA, January 8 (LINA) – The United States envisions a world where human rights and fundamental freedoms of all persons are realized, says American Ambassador to Liberia, Deborah Malac.

“While there is distance left to travel to make that world a reality, the United States pledges to be a partner with Liberia in that journey to remove the stigma of Ebola and HIV/AIDS, to ensure justice for trafficking victims, to empower women and girls, and promote the rights of persons with disabilities,” Malac said.

“My wish for all Liberians in 2015 and beyond is to continue to build upon the progress we have made and the challenges we have faced in the past year.  Let us continue to work to prevent new Ebola infections, to strengthen our partnerships, and increase our respect for all members of society,” she said in aq US embassy release.

In her New Year’s message, the US diplomat noted the Government of the United States is proud to partner with the people and Government of Liberia to fight the Ebola virus in West Africa, ever more so because of the progress we have seen in the past few months.

However, she cautioned that the battle is not yet won. 

According to her, with the support of the United Nations, civil society, and international partners, the people of Liberia must stay committed to stemming new Ebola infections and preventing new outbreaks throughout the country.

She said the full-fledged international response to the Ebola crisis has created new partnerships between government, civil society and various institutions. 

“We hope these health-related partnerships continue to flourish and strengthen in 2015 and beyond into a post-Ebola Liberia so that men, women, and children have access to regular and safe healthcare. Together we can eliminate Ebola from Liberia and her neighbors; getting this done is everybody’s business”, Malac said.
