Health Official Pays Homage to RHBS

MONROVIA, February 20 (LINA) – An official of the Health Ministry has paid homage to the Rebuilding Health Services (RBHS) for its invaluable role in transforming the health sector during seven years of work in the country.

“You came in at a time when all the building blocks of the health system were deeply affected by the war - as there were not enough trained and qualified workers, several health facilities substandard,” the Chief Medical Officer of Liberia, Dr. Bernice Dahn, indicated.

Speaking at programs marking the official closure of the project in Liberia Friday, she praised the entity for its provision of technical consultants who tailored the National Health Policy and roles in the capacity-building of the ministry staff.

The National Policy Plan was among other things geared towards rebuilding the health system and identifying strategic orientations upon which the sector can operate.

“We appreciate you so much for being a valuable asset to the government, especially in the improvement of program performance as well as improved health indicators,” Dr. Dahn stressed.

Since 2008, the John Snow Incorporated (JSI), a United States Agency for International Development-funded RBHS project has been working with the Health Ministry to rebuild its health system after the 14-year of civil unrest.

RBHS is the U.S. government flagship health sector project in Liberia and JSI implements it along with other partners.
