Health Care Systems In Liberia, West Africa Look To Recover, Improve Following Ebola Outbreak

The Atlantic: A Liberian Hospital After Ebola
“…Redemption, Monrovia’s only free general hospital, lay at the heart of Liberia’s Ebola outbreak. Now it is a test case for whether hospitals in West Africa can change the way they operate, so a disease like Ebola never puts such a stranglehold on the region again. With help from the International Rescue Committee (IRC) and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), Redemption has been overhauled. Its success at catching Liberia’s last Ebola patient — the country was declared free of the disease on May 9 — has raised hopes that Redemption can lead Liberia’s health system into a new era…” (DiLorenzo, 5/29).
