The Ministry of Health (MOH) and the United States Agency for International development (USAID) on Monday July 15, 2019, signed a memorandum of understanding by contracting an additional three counties, Grand Cape Mount, River Gee and Rivercess to make sure that Liberians achieve quality healthcare.
This recent MOU of the additional three (3) counties was signed based on the positive indicators realized from the first three (3) traditional FARA counties, Lofa, Nimba and Bong which were contracted-in last year, July 19, 2018 by USAID.
This agreement was made under the Fixed Amount Reimbursement Account (FARA) at the Ministry of Health in which it is being supported for the implementation of the government’s ten-year national health policy and plan.
Speaking on behalf of the Ministry, Minister Dr. Wilhemina Jallah, cautioned the county health officers to jealously protect the American taxpayer’s money, other donors funding as well as the government allotment by assuming accountability and transparency.
Jessica Healey, USAID’s new Health Director, appreciated the MOH leadership for the level of effectiveness to making sure that the partnership succeeds.
According to Director Healey, there are other programs through which the American Government is willing to assist Liberia through USAID.
