first_imgThe Government of Liberia, through the Ministry of Health, and its partners, are meeting to discuss how to build a post-Ebola resilient healthcare delivery system in Liberia.It is no secret that the nation’s health sector completely collapsed in 2014 when the deadly EDV tested the “gains” that health stakeholders boasted they had attained before Ebola struck.The 3-day meeting, which is being held at the Paynesville City Hall, is aimed at assessing the nation’s healthcare system and also to arrive at a consensus on an investment plan for the health sector.The meeting, being attended by local and international partners, including the World Health Organization (WHO), European Union (EU), United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and World Bank (WB), will validate the country’s health system assessment report as a result of the outbreak of the Ebola virus disease (EVD) and also build consensus on finalizing the post-Ebola investment plan for the sector as the nation moves toward building a resilient health system.According to the chairman of the Planning Committee for the meeting, Mr. Momolu V.O. Sirleaf, “the objectives of the meeting are to review and validate the health system assessment report; further review and refine critical investment areas for building a resilient health system and build consensus on the Investment and Transitional Health Plans.”“The meeting would also offer an opportunity for the country’s stakeholders to provide inputs into the national assessment findings that were undertaken by the Ministry of Health in order to provide key decisions in developing the health sector post-Ebola plan,” he further stated.The validation plan will build upon the 10-year Health Plan developed and launched by the government in 2011. Mr. Sirleaf clarified that the post-Ebola plan would be an add-on to the 10-year health plan.At the formal opening of the meeting yesterday, Deputy Health Minister Yah M. Zorlia, stated that prior to the Ebola outbreak, Liberia was successfully implementing its 10-year health program with some level of good progress. According to her, notable among the “gains” was the attainment of the Millennium Development Goal Four (MDG4), which is the under-five mortality rate reduction. In 2013, Liberia received praises from international bodies, including the United Nations, for meeting the MDG4.The nation had already gone three years into the implementation of the 10-year plan and stakeholders had planned to meet in October 2014 to evaluate the performance of the first three years when Ebola struck.“In March 2014 the Ebola outbreak started. This led to the breakdown of essential health services in Liberia,” Mrs. Zorlia added. She further stated that the EVD outbreak exposed weaknesses in the health sector and the healthcare delivery system of the country.“This needs to be addressed so that we can avoid the reversal of the gains we have made thus far; as well as build a health system that is able to withstand any future threats,” she stressed.The Minister of Health, Dr. Walter T. Gwenigale, assembled a team of health technocrats, who began planning for building a resilient health sector back in October 2014. The 10-year plan’s cost for the next seven years run into several millions of United States dollars.Affirming the Investment Plan, Dr. Gwenigale said, “This investment plan for building a resilient health system in Liberia represents an effort arising from the experience of the Ebola virus disease.“It highlights the Government’s priorities in re-building the health system to ensure it has the capacity, not only to provide the expected essential health services for the people of Liberia, but also able to identify and appropriately respond to future health threats of whatever form.”The Health Minister told the audience that President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf was awaiting the final document that would emerge from the conference. He further disclosed that the document is one of the papers that the President might take along with her to a donor conference to be held in Washington, D.C. “So let’s work and finish it so she can take it with her and see what we can do to raise funds to build a better health system than we had before,” declared Dr. Gwenigale. Representatives of various health partners who made separates remarks at the opening, all pledged to work with the Ministry as it strives to build a resilient health sector.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_img0Shares0000Arsenal’s striker Alexis Sanchez, pictured on January 12, 2017BERLIN, Germany, Jul 17-Bayern Munich boss Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has confirmed they have dropped their interest in signing Arsenal striker Alexis Sanchez for next season.After head coach Carlo Ancelotti last week had his wish granted to sign Colombia’s James Rodriguez on loan from Real Madrid, Bayern have called off their bid to poach Chile’s hot-shot Sanchez from Arsenal. “We are no longer involved. We have agreed with our coach that we won’t add (new players) in attack. It wouldn’t make any sense,” Bayern’s chairman Rummenigge told German magazine Kicker.Bayern had reportedly been vying with Manchester City to sign Sanchez, 28, Chile’s all-time top scorer, who has a year left on his Arsenal contract, but is stalling over extension negotiations with the Gunners.Reports in Britain have said he could be offloaded for up to £80mn, but Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger suggested last week this won’t happen.Sanchez, who at times last season cut a disgruntled figure as Arsenal struggled with form, is not on the team’s pre-season tour to Australia and China as he rests after last month’s Confederation’s Cup when Chile lost to Germany in the final.Bayern will start their pre-season tour of China and Singapore on Wednesday when they play Arsenal in Shanghai.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_imgDONEGAL entrepreneur Elizabeth O’Donnell is to appear on this Friday’s Late Late Show, RTE has announced.Her appearance is to coincide with the Grand Final of ERP Junk Kouture 2012 which takes place at 4pm on Friday 20th at CityWest hotel in Dublin.The Buncrana woman will be interviewed by Ryan Tubridy and will announce the Overall Winners of this year’s Junk Kouture competition. The Top four entries will get their chance to show case their winning designs to the nation and explain their inspirations and the work involved in turning rubbish in Couture.ERP Junk Kouture is a competition for Second Level students throughout the whole island of Ireland, whereby they are challenged to create Couture fashion from old everyday junk.  The idea is to subtly educate kids about recycling and at the same time inspire them to create something fashionable and wearable.Junk Kouture was setup in June 2010 and is now at the end of its second season with over 2500 students being involved in the last 2 years and 5000 more having come to see the Junk Kouture shows.As Elizabeth explains… “It is incredible how much the competition has grown in less than 2 years…The highlight of which for me was our invitation to the Royal Film Premiere in London where some of our models got to showcase their homemade glamorous dresses made entirely out of old junk that normally people would throw away. It was an incredible night all round and greatly increased the profile of what we are doing.” She went on: “The 2013 competition promises to be even bigger as we have plans to get involved in the City of Culture in Derry and bring the Grand Final of Junk Kouture 2013 to the North West.“This would mean so much to me, considering I have lived most of my life in Buncrana and now in Derry, I am really excited about what the City of Culture have planned for 2013, and I would be so proud for Junk Kouture to be included on their programme of events. Coupled with this, we have been handed a huge boost recently with Moya Doherty of Riverdance coming on board as a Company Mentor.“To work alone side someone like her is amazing for us, she has been there and done it in terms of taking a show from nowhere to being a worldwide success. Moya shares our plans for Junk Kouture and with her guidance we believe we can help Junk Kouture fulfil all of its potential.” DONEGAL ENTREPRENEUR ELIZABETH TO APPEAR ON LATE LATE SHOW was last modified: April 16th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:DONEGAL ENTREPRENEUR ELIZABETH TO APPEAR ON LATE LATE SHOWlast_img read more
