UMass Partnership In Liberia
By Livia Gershon

Worcester Business Journal Staff Writer


The University of Massachusetts Medical School in Worcester is working with the University of Liberia and Indiana University on a $7.2-million project to establish health care training programs in Liberia.

The effort is funded by a grant from the U.S. Agency for International Development. It aims to create a new Center for Excellence in Health and Life Sciences at the University of Liberia. The center will offer academic and research programs in biotechnology, public health, nursing and pre-clinical training.

As of 2003, the African nation of more than 3 million had only 103 doctors, and less than one health care worker for every 1,000 people, according to a statement from UMass Medical School. The new effort is part of a campaign to rebuild health care education in the country.
