With early detection, we have been able to put people with diabetes in care

- Dr Dorfelson Jayguhwoiyan

The latest WDF project in Liberia has helped integrate routine diabetes services nationwide – a success owing to strong leadership from the Ministry of Health and county teams. Dr Dorfelson, the NCD focal person for Lofa County, is one of the driving forces.

 

 

Liberia, home to 5.4 million people, is still recovering from two civil wars, an Ebola outbreak, and an ongoing malaria health crisis, a situation that has not made it easy to prioritise non-communicable diseases (NCDs) in national healthcare.

 

 

WDF has been engaged in Liberia since 2009, supporting projects that have catalysed the country's first nationwide NCD programme, integrating routine diabetes care services in 26 health facilities. The project was implemented by the Ministry of Health's NCDI Unit and Ganta United Methodist Hospital.
