Global Communities Launches $US25M Health Project In Bong, Lofa And Nimba

By Korboi K. Gbelewala/LINA Lofa County Correspondent

VOINJAMA, April 26 (LINA)-Global Communities Partners for Good in collaboration with  other NGOs has launched a five- year Partnership for Advancing Community-based Service (PACS) project in Lofa,  Bong and Nimba Counties.

The project estimated at 25 million United States dollars, is a cooperative agreement with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to implement the Partnership for Advancing Community-based Service project in the three counties.

The PASC project will support sustainable country ownership of community-based health, social welfare, and WASH services.

The International Rescue Committee (IRC) will lead a consortium of  two international partners, Population Services International (PSI) and Global Communities (GC) which will provide intensive capacity building and technical assistance.

According to Global Communities Partners for Good County Technical Advisor Mr. Leroy Johnson, the objective of the five- year project is to broaden the capacity of the ministry of health through its community health teams and community organizations to implement and manage community services, increase availability of community-based health and social welfare services, improve health-seeking behaviors and practices and to improve access to safe Water   and Sanitation Hygiene (WASH) services in these communities.

He said under the project local community organizations will  be provided funding opportunities through sub-award mechanisms, complemented by technical training and a comprehensive capacity building program that will see local organizations graduate to direct USAID management over the five-year period.

The project is expected to run from February 22, 2015 to February 22, 2020.

Speaking at the launching ceremony, Lofa County Superintendent George S. Dunor lauded USAID through Global Communities and implementing partners for the project.

Superintendent Dunor recounted the assistance provided the county by Global Communities Partners for Good and other partners and commended them for their immense contributions to the county before and during the Ebola fight.

 The Lofa County Boss also pointed out that the gains made  in the fight against Ebola cannot only be attributed to the involvement of citizens but also to the efforts of all partners.
