MONROVIA, August 17 (LINA) - Deputy Public Works Minister For Rural Development, Mr. Jackson Paye, has observed that the Government of Liberia considers Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) a high priority on its development agenda.
He said as a testimony to that commitment, government has deployed coordinators in almost all of the counties to work with community dwellers for the provision of safe drinking water throughout the country.
Mr. Paye made the statement Tuesday in an interview with the Liberia News Agency at his office on Lynch Street in Monrovia.
According to Deputy Minister Paye, government will strengthen the healthcare system through the provision, among other things, of adequate safe drinking water and make sanitation and hygiene widespread in every nook and cranny.
Mr. Paye stressed that government will also exert more effort to deliver on its health and WASH promises that are yet outstanding.
