Chambers Wants Synergy in Health Sector Deliverables -As PIH Unveils Topnotch Medical Doctor for Works in Maryland County

House Speaker, Dr. Bhofal Chambers has expressed the need for synergy in mitigating the health challenges amongst the forerunners of the country’s health sector and their collaborating partne    The Speaker says there are often reports of the partners in the health sector pursuing the same medical objectives as the ministry does, thereby leaving out other needs of the sector that are essential, which are not caught in the Government of Liberia fiscal space, due to constraints.

Dr. Chambers, flanked by Senator J. Bleh-bo Brown of Maryland County, has however expressed optimism that Partners In Health, the leading medical NGO in Southeastern Liberia, which has a good record of working in Liberia for more than 10-years, will continue their good works in the country, and hopes that the organization’s impact in the health sector will touch the lives of many Liberians in the counties where they work including Maryland.

The Speaker also used the occasion and extended his condolences to Partners in Health for the loss of one of their progenitors in the late Dr. Paul Farmer, who had exceptional works records in Liberia. Dr. Dr. Farmer unexpectedly died a few months ago in Rwanda from an acute cardiac whilst sleeping.

Speaker Chambers elucidated his concerns Tuesday in Monrovia, when a delegation from the NGO, Partners In Health, paid a courtesy visit at his Capitol Building office in Monrovia and unveiled to him, Dr. Joia S. Mukherjee, a topnotch American trained medical practitioner who takes on an assignment in Maryland County, to buttress the medical skills and procedures of health workers starting up with the J.J. Dossen Memorial Hospital in Harper, Maryland County.

During the meeting, the Executive Director of Partners in Health, Liberia, Dr. Maxo Luma, told the gathering that his organization has been working in building the capacities of many health workers in the country. He added that his organization has a reputation for working with health practitioners in public health facilities in several countries around the world including Rwanda, Lesotho, Liberia, amongst others.

Also making assertion during the meeting was the unveiled American trained topnotch medical doctor, Madam Joia S. Mukherjee, who expressed gladness to be back in Liberia. She has however pleaded the indulgence of the country’s health actors to increase staffing at the J.J. Dossen Memorial Hospital and other medical centers in the country so as to measure up to the influx of patients and the increasing medical needs and training at the institutions.
