Liberia’s Health Minister Dr. Wilhelmina Jallah along with an array of Government officials and other partners on Monday, September 6, 2021, commissioned a newly constructed annex worth over US$422,733.62.
The infrastructure development and the provision of quality services across the nation are among numerous activities that should be taken seriously by every government Ministry. On Monday, several government officials joined Dr. Jallah and her team at the Ministry of Health to commission the newly constructed annex which started in 2018. The building is very spacious and contains over fifty rooms, and it will host more partner offices and programs that are within the Ministry’s main building.
According to the Minister of Health, the building is currently at 50% completion and its completion will depend on the financial support from the Ministry’s partners including the Government of Liberia.
A release from the Ministry of Health also said the new building will host offices of the Expanded Program on Immunization (EPI). The building was constructed by the Ministry of Health with support from the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI). GAVI is a global health partnership of public and private sector organizations dedicated to “immunization for all”. Program Immunization and Afrique Construction and Maintenance Company implemented the project.
