Health and Medicine

Liberia, prior to the civil war, had few private and public hospitals and clinics. One of the major public hospitals is the John F. Kennedy Memorial Hospital in Monrovia, the capital of Liberia. This hospital serves as a feeder, providing training for young Liberians in several medical disciplines ranging from nurses to doctors. These medical personnel in turn are sent into the counties to provide and assist in the caring for the Liberian citizenry. Although the counties’ hospitals are few and not fully equipped and sub-standard, they provide basic medical and health needs for the people. Today, they are malfunctioning with few medical staff, few beds, out-dated medical and surgical equipments and lack of efficient records keeping.
