3 MRU States To Implement Robust Recovery Scheme

MONROVIA, July 16 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has disclosed that the three Ebola-affected countries of the Mano River Union (MRU) have resolved to implement a robust social and economic recovery program moving from emergency to stabilization.

“Our recovery program aims to build upon lessons learned from the successful partnership that government and our development partners established during the Ebola response,” she noted.

According to a dispatch, the Liberian leader noted that it is a process that is fully aligned with our various national development plans, essentially to make a seamless transition from the response to recovery.

Speaking on behalf of the MRU states at an international conference in New York on Ebola recently, President Sirleaf pointed out that the next thing is to make sure that the capacity of the healthcare system is restored and strengthened to deliver healthcare services.

She added: “Let me add that strengthening capacity is also important for other sectors that were grossly affected by the outbreak. For example, education, water and sanitation, agriculture, and social protection for our vulnerable populations were amongst some of the grossly affected sectors.

“All these sectors are critical to rebuilding and/or strengthening the resilience of our communities, which were the lifeblood of our Ebola response,” the President stressed.

She observed that given the intensity of the deaths and trauma that the outbreak caused, psychosocial services to affected people and communities will be important to address the mental health disorders that may arise as a result.
