#Genderequality in healthcare matters. Women account for 70% of all #healthworkers yet face discrimination, harassment, and lower pay on the job. https://t.co/7TtGieNi8B Via @WHO.

An important report with compelling data and analysis on #genderequity and #WomeninGH . "Lack of gender balance in health leadership means global health loses female talent, perspectives and knowledge." Thank you @womeninGH @WHO https://t.co/Q5SfvW8nKI

Liberia

Years of civil war during the 1990s took a toll on the health of Liberia’s people, and child health in particular suffered. With an infant mortality rate of 138 per 1,000 births, Liberia has one of the highest infant death rates in the world. EngenderHealth worked with Liberia’s Ministry of Health to help improve child survival by combating malaria, a common cause of death and disease in young children.

EngenderHealth’s Projects
Liberia was one of 21 West African nations that participated in the Action for West Africa Region-Reproductive Health (AWARE-RH) Project, funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and led by EngenderHealth. From its launch in 2003 to its close in 2008, the AWARE-RH project in Liberia:

  • Sponsored training for the country’s Ministry of Health staff;
  • Proposed new malaria protocols and supported a government increase in available budget for malaria prevention and treatment.

Additionally, EngenderHealth’s Fistula Care project has worked in Liberia.  Fistula Care activities there were implemented by Mercy Ships International via its floating hospital, the Africa Mercy, which was moored in Monrovia, Liberia.
