Liberia’s Health Care System Deteriorating Since Ebola; Some Expenses Go Unaccounted, Audit Shows

“…[Liberia’s] already anemic health care system has deteriorated further. Though Liberia is awash in donor money, a recent government audit revealed expenses that could not be accounted for. While the amount is relatively small, the revelation has stalled leadership appointments at the Ministry of Health. Bureaucratic hiccups in the distribution of salaries are discouraging health care staff from working during another epidemic. And … it is unclear what the country will do once the cash spigot has been turned off…” (Stokes, 6/25).
