COVID-19 Pandemic: Strategy for Infection Prevention and Control (IPC)

Main Banner

Liberia has been at peace for nearly two decades, but the country remains among the world’s poorest and the majority of it’s people live below the poverty line, with large sections of the population dangerously exposed to unsafe water and sanitation, with common diseases related to water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH). The Ebola outbreak of 2013-14 highlighted this vulnerability, but also instilled within Liberian society and institutions the knowledge and resilience to tackle the COVID-19 outbreak.
The Liberia Water & Sewer Corporation (LWSC) is responsible for water supply and sanitation services in urban areas, and is one of the key institutions at the frontline to tackle the pandemic in Liberia.
