The Health Promoters’ Network of Liberia (HPNL) has commended President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf for her visit early morning on Wednesday, 9, at the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare in Congo Town.

The group said they welcomed intervention measures taken by the Health Ministry under the leadership of Dr. Walter T. Gwenigale, and partners, including World Health Organization (WHO), US Defense Department and Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for their consented efforts aimed at containing the spread of deadly Ebola virus in Liberia.
