Peaceful elections in 2005 and the inauguration of Africa’s first female head of state in 2006 ushered in a period of hope and high expectations for Liberia’s recovery after decades of instability.
The consequences of 14 years of violent conflict constitute huge challenges to the recovery, reform and rebuilding process.
The Government of Liberia, with the support of international partners—of which the United States is the largest bilateral donor—is slowly restoring public confidence in political, social, economic and judicial institutions while addressing the regional disparity and bad governance that contributed to the conflict.
In response to the West Africa Ebola Outbreak, USAID has activated a Disaster Assistance Response Team (DART). The DART, comprising team members in Monrovia, Liberia, and Conakry, Guinea, coordinates planning, operations, logistics, administrative issues, and other critical areas of the interagency response to help control the outbreak.
