Liberia ICHP

Summary

CCP works with lead partner Africare on this program that aims to improve the availability, quality, and reach of primary health care (PHC) and family planning services. The principal focus is at the community level, with timely referral for strengthened services at secondary and tertiary facilities. Strengthening community health outreach is a key component of the program. This includes the training of community-based health workers in delivering basic PCH services, assisting with home-based births and distribution of basic medicines, and providing education to community residents with the goal of increased disease prevention and improved knowledge of health care practices. CCP is working with local NGOs to design mass media and community-based, behavior change communication activities promoting modern health care and family planning.
