The Minister of Health Doctor Wilhelmina Jallah assures health workers across the country of ongoing effort by the Ministry in reaching out to partners for seed funding that would immediately address shortages of essential drugs within the health sector.

Doctor Jallah emphasizes the need for county health team officials’ advocacy to donors for the erection of solar plates in referral hospitals and solar suitcases in various clinics to buttress government’s effort.
She urges county health officials to take the lead in collaborating or liaising with the Ministry of Health before formulating contracts with partners to avoid future embarrassment.

According to a press release, Doctor Jallah spoke recently while on a three-county tour in Western Liberia to assess health institutions in those areas.

The tour covered Grand Cape Mount, Bomi, and Gbarpolu counties, respectively aimed at assessing the health care system there.
The Minister held meetings with county health teams, hospital management teams, partners, health workers, civil society organizations, women groups, and superintendents. She also interacted with patients and community residents.

She lauds health practitioners for their dedication in providing quality health care to Liberians in the remotest parts of the country.
The county health officers and health workers applaud the Minister for her farsightedness and professional thoughts in reaching out to know the health status in the counties, and challenge the Minister to continue checking on health facilities across the country. Press Release
