She made the disclosure recently at a program marking the launch of the "Five by Twenty" Post-Ebola Program held at the Monrovia City Hall.
The program was held by the Coca Cola Bottling Company.

The "Five by Twenty Program" is intended to assist the needy, particularly to women, in society through the provision of financial aid and loans.

She stressed that the ministry and its partners are working closely along with the Ebola Survivors Network to ensure that they get the needed support to be reintegrated into their various communities.

The Gender Minister then warned the public against discrimination against and stigmatization of Ebola survivors noting, "Ebola survivors do not have the capacity to infect others with the virus."-
