UNOPS has been operating peace and security, humanitarian and development projects in Liberia since 2004. We support our partners’ projects in a range of areas, including infrastructure, project management and procurement, as well as administrative, logistical and human resources support.
Our work enables partners to make vital improvements in healthcare services that help drive sustainable development throughout the country.
Our team of infrastructure and procurement experts are upgrading medical facilities to help strengthen the country's capacity and resilience against future health emergencies. Newly constructed or renovated facilities equipped with biomedical and laboratory equipment improve patient screening, help contain disease outbreaks and provide a safer environment for patients and medical staff.
UNOPS Impact in Liberia
- Improved access to better health facilities.
- Enhanced public trust and confidence in the health facilities.
- Enabled the participation of women in local business opportunities.
