Pres. Sirleaf Welcomes Ties With Seed Global Health 

MONROVIA, March 16 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf says her administration welcomes partnership and cooperation with Seed Global Health which seeks to build and strengthen Liberia’s healthcare delivery capacity. 

According to an Executive Mansion release, President Sirleaf was speaking in Monrovia at the weekend at her temporary Foreign Ministry Office when the Chief Executive Officer of Seed Global Health, Dr. Vanessa Kerry, at the head of a four-member delegation, paid a courtesy call on the President.

The Liberian leader stressed the importance of such critical and strategic partnership, which is aimed at enhancing government’s determination to improve the quality of healthcare delivery for the Liberian people.

She underscored the vital and compelling need to provide training for doctors, physicians, nurses as well as midwives adding, “The progress we desire to make must be informed by the best quality to achieve lasting and impressive results.”

President Sirleaf also said Seed Global Health’s strategic intervention in Liberia’s health sector in light of the deployment of experienced medical volunteers in partnership with U.S. Peace Corps, focusing on the provision of quality healthcare services and building local capacities, would tremendously impact the building of a resilient health system.

She then called on the Seed Global Health team to enter into special arrangement with the A.M. Dogliotti College of Medicine at the University of Liberia and other recognized medical training facilities in the country to improve quality.

The Liberian leader also encouraged Seed Global Health to explore cooperation in the water and sanitation sector, especially in working with schools to improve the quality of service as well as provide the much needed training that will ensure facilities established are sustainably maintained for the good of Liberian children.

The Global Health Service Partnership (GHSP) is a public-private collaboration between Seed Global Health, the Peace Corps, and the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). 

Established in 2012, the GHSP program is a novel federal initiative addressing vast shortages of health professionals in many parts of the world.
