Liberia's health sector hits rock bottom
Several public health facilities in Liberia are on the verge of closure due to the lack of essential drugs and medical supplies, for which healthcare workers have embarked on a series of strikes.
Public healthcare workers are also demanding three months’ of salaries and benefits owed them by the government. Patients are being told to leave the health facilities due to lack of drugs and other medical equipment. The situation is creating uneasiness among ordinary citizens, especially in rural communities where there is a huge shortage of health workers. Darlington Porkpa reports from the capital Monrovia.
