The Ebola virus outbreak demonstrated the vital need for effective communication systems between health workers and the central Ministry of Health (MoH) to make informed decisions, which is especially essential during emergency situations such as a disease outbreak. To address the communication and information sharing gaps between health officials and frontline health workers, USAID is supporting the strengthening of the mHero in Liberia Activity. The activity will work to create an enabling environment for the use of mHero in routine and emergency situation and build the capacity of the MoH to use information for informed decision-making.

USAID is providing technical assistance to the Central Medical Stores (CMS), Supply Chain Management Unit, Pharmacy Division and public health programs of the Ministry of Health (MOH) in Liberia to strengthen the management of health commodity logistics management systems. This support is also extended to the County Health team and District Health teams to improve the overall health supply chain support systems and thereby help improve health outcomes for the people of Liberia. This support is provided through two projects: USAID Global Health Supply Chain Program-Procurment and Supply Management (GHSC-PSM) implemented by Chemonics International Inc., and Project Last Mile (PLM), a partnership between USAID and Coca-Cola.

The Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA) works to prevent and combat newly emerging and reemerging infectious diseases that have pandemic potential among humans. It is a growing global partnership focused on building countries’ capacities to contribute to a world safe from infectious disease threats, including from zoonotic diseases. GHSA activities in Liberia are guided by an interagency U.S. Government team, including the Department of State, USAID, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Department of Defense, and the National Institute of Health. In Liberia, GHSA supports a multi-sector coordination mechanism for disease surveillance, animal testing immunization, and capacity development for animal health professionals for risk-based epidemiology and response.
