(elbcradio.com/August 3, 2015)-The United States Government has spoken of plans to assist in revamping the Liberian education sector.

U.S Ambassador to Liberia, Deborah Malac, said: “My government will collaborate with the Education Ministry to build teachers’ capacity and to improve the education sector.”

At the same time, Ambassador Malac has praised the Liberian Government for its swift efforts in handling the reemergence of the Ebola virus in the country.

The U.S diplomat said: “The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will also collaborate with the Health Ministry to ensure that the country’s public health care system is improved and responsive to the needs of the people.”

Ambassador Malac made the pledge recently in Monrovia at program marking the official launch of a permanent office for the CDC in Liberia.

She then expressed optimism that the establishment of an office for the CDC in Liberia will help strengthen the country’s health sector.

Recently, the CDC established a permanent office in Liberia as part of the Government’s robust international engagements, aimed at enhancing the country’s post-Ebola recovery agenda.

Liberia was declared an Ebola free nation in May, 2015 by the World Health Organization (WHO), a specialized agency of the United Nations with oversight on all international health-related issues.

Because of the Liberian health authorities’ swift containment of the Ebola virus’ reemergence in the country, Liberia received another international recognition as a testimony to the local health professionals’ resilient efforts.

The Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) is a global pandemic that poses threats to the existence of humanity.
