A Thriving Local Health Center
As part of our longer term program to strengthen a badly weakened and under-resourced health system, Americares is increasing health care access and improving health services for mothers and newborns in Grand Bassa County. The project included facility upgrades (including some construction), equipment, medicines and staff training at three health facilities – one hospital and two clinics. One facility renovation now serves some 15,000 residents in and around Zondo Town in Grand Bassa County with a modern maternal/child clinic. In addition, the new Community Partnerships for Respectful Care program supports those providing skilled care in order to improve the quality of care and increase the number of women delivering with a skilled birth attendant, as well as those accessing other essential services such as family planning, newborn and child health services and nutrition outreach.
