MONROVIA, September 4 (LINA) – Health Minister Bernice Dahn has disclosed plans by the Ministry to train 4,100 community healthcare workers over a seven-year period.

According to Dr. Dahn, during the first two years the ministry will train about 406 persons and deploy them in eight counties, which she did not name.

Addressing the Ministry of Information regular press briefing held at the Ministry of Health (MoH) in Congo Town Thursday, she noted that health authorities know that the communities helped a lot during the outbreak of Ebola.

She indicated that MoH policy is being revised for community healthcare workers and that the training materials have also been developed, adding that by January 2016 the ministry will launch the community healthcare workforce program.

“We all know that the patient-to-doctor ratio in the country is very small and so the plan took into consideration improving training at our various health training institutions,” she said.

The Health Minister also disclosed that the Ministry of Health is planning to enroll 56 students at the A.M Dogliotti College of Medicine within the first year.

Dahn noted that the plan is to also improve the medical school’s infrastructure and expand it with an additional faculty block, five student dormitories, online lectures, video system and lecture hall, among others.
