The National Public Health Institute of Liberia Embarks on MassiveSanitation Exercise Across the Country
The National Public Health Institute of Liberia as an autonomous agency under the Ministry of Health, solely responsible for disease surveillance has embarked on a vigorous sanitation exercise in Liberia.
According to Jaybah Mubah, Special assistant to Tolbert Nyensuah, the action is aimed at ensuring that Liberians live under a better hygienic condition. Speaking with scores of reporters during the observance of this year's Christmas celebration, Mulbah noted that they've commenced the exercises at commercial swimming pools, garages, water factories amongst others.
He however, added that septic tank closeness to wells in the country are among paramount issues NPHIL tend to address. It can be recalled the president Ellen Johnson Sirleaf forwarded an act to the Legislature establishing the National Public Health Institute of Liberia. The act passed by the Legislature brought the full establishment of the National Public Health Institute (NPHIL).
Renovation works are now ongoing at the Congo Town Township for NPHIL's administrative complex.
Mulbah asserted that construction works are ongoing and is expected to be fully completed in 2019.
The Special assistant to Tolbert Nyensuah is calling on Liberians to take their health issues seriously and report any uprising relating to disease outbreak in their homes and communities. Mulbah is also challenging Liberians to secured their environments in ensuring that their activities meet common best health practices.
