Liberia

Fieldset

The West-African nation of Liberia is Africa’s oldest republic, and its first country to elect a female head of state. However, this nation of historic firsts has faced a series of humanitarian emergencies, including a catastrophic civil war that ended in 1997 and the 2014 Ebola outbreak.

Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) first worked in Liberia in 1990. Our work has focused on providing medical care in response to war and disease, and on addressing gaps in the healthcare system.
