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.

'He kicked me in the stomach, I peed on myself. He body-slammed me to the floor twice and told me he would kill me, no one will find my body.: In her journey to recovery, domestic violence survivor Christine R. M. Dennis-Freeman tells it all

The tragic story of Christine R. M. Dennis-Freeman, like that of Agnes Yarlee and Diane Hart before her, has brought the issue of domestic abuse out of the dark unspoken place it thrives and into the open.
It's horrendous that it takes the death of women, or an attempt to kill women, to get a serious debate  on the issue of domestic abuse. Discussing domestic violence in our society is a real taboo and most men within the Liberian society, don't even find the topic worth their time, as compared to discussing sports, politics and corruption. 
But these women mention above are just the tip of the iceberg.

Defying the odds, Mrs. Dennis-Freeman refuses to keep her mouth shut and go with the flow of the Liberian society.  She courageously sat in a wheel chair up to 1:30am, sharing her story with C Liberia Clearly.  In her own words, she walked us through the day that led to her horrific story.
