US Mission Expresses Concern Over Reported Misuse of Healthcare Funds

MONROVIA – The United States Mission to Liberia said it is concerned about a media report centering around alleged misuse of funds provided by the United States Government to support health care for the people of Margibi County.

In a terse press release issued yesterday, February 6, 2023, the institution said it has a special responsibility to ensure that money provided by United States taxpayers for the benefit of the people of Liberia, including the people of Margibi, is used for its intended purpose.

“We commend the investigative journalism that brought this story to light and appreciate the swift action by the Ministry of Health to make immediate changes while investigating the matter.

“The USAID Mission to Liberia will decide whether to retain Margibi as part of USAID’s government-to-government agreement pending a transparent investigation and associated actions to hold accountable anyone involved in the misuse of any U.S. government funds”, the release concluded.
