BOSTON (Oct. 9, 2014) – Management Sciences for Health (MSH), a Massachusetts-based global health nonprofit organization, today announced it is mobilizing its expertise and resources at the epicenter of the Ebola epidemic in Liberia to help the Ministry of Health develop community care centers for Ebola separate from the health facilities; restore essential health services for non-Ebola patients; and, improve the detection and containment of active Ebola cases in Liberian communities.“Emergency response is what happens when preparedness has failed,” said Dr. Jonathan Quick, President and CEO of MSH and the former director of Essential Drugs and Medicines Policy at the World Health Organization. “MSH has been helping build locally led and locally run health systems in the world’s poorest regions for over 40 years. Our immediate priorities are to work with government and community leaders to stop a health system collapse in Liberia, to prevent the epidemic from spreading to nearby nations, and to restore Liberians’ trust in their health system.”The MSH response team arrived in Liberia on Monday and is working with the Liberian government and local partners to identify gaps and unmet needs. The MSH team includes Ian Sliney, senior director for health systems strengthening; Dr. Floride Niyuhire, senior technical advisor; Kwabena Larbi, malaria control advisor; and Christophe Maupas, a supply chain management expert.  They were met by Arthur Loryoun, MSH technical advisor and pharmacist based in Liberia.   Dr. Fred Hartman, MSH’s pandemic preparedness and infectious diseases expert, is departing today for Liberia, where new cases of Ebola are doubling every two weeks. MSH experts are also on the ground in the neighboring countries of Cote d'Ivoire, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Nigeria and Gabon.
