After the outbreak: Med schools boost Ebola-wrecked Liberia

November 23, 2017

Teams from U.S. universities and hospitals are helping to build Liberia's health care system back up following the devastation inflicted by the Ebola outbreak.

The West African nation was left with one of the lowest doctor-to-patient ratios in the world following the epidemic that killed 4,800 in Liberia alone.

Onyema Ogbuagu is a Yale School of Medicine professor who spent last week in Liberia. He says shortages of medical faculty have left deep gaps in trainees' knowledge.

Yale is involved in efforts to strengthen medical training in the country along with Boston Children's Hospital, New York's Mount Sinai, Brigham and Women's Hospital and New York University. The work is supported by grants from the World Bank and the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration.
