USAID asked NetHope to provide an overview of the state of the information and communications technology (ICT) capabilities in Liberia in three key areas: (a) network and Infrastructure, (b) software and platforms, and (c) digital payments to be used as enabling tools to assist in containing Ebola.
This report was created as part of a two-week rapid assessment. It includes information from first-hand reports from multiple response organizations, discussions with USAID Mission staff in Liberia and implementing partners, and desk research. It is meant to provide a snapshot of the current on-the-ground situation in Liberia and is a first step toward a longer, more exhaustive assessment necessary to gather empirical data.
The WHO Regional Office for Africa has worked closely with public health leaders and subject-matter experts in the region and partner organizations to draw up and design this framework to serve as a concise and easy-to-use technical and managerial guide for senior level decision-makers and members of national emergency management committees (EMCs) and rapid response teams (RRTs) in member states.
In light of escalating Ebola Virus Disease crisis in Liberia, this Consolidated Plan builds on the original Joint UN Support Plan launched by the UN system in Liberia on the 14th of August in Liberia.
