Mid-Year Progress in Focus - 2016

A major achievement by the government has been maintaining the resilient zero with no new Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) cases. WHO has been working closely with the MoHS to support the roll out of the Integrated Disease Surveillance and Response (IDSR) system and capacity across the country. Today all health facilities are reporting in a timely and correct manner. The preparation for putting the system on an electronic platform and improving the quality of the data is also well under way.

Since the beginning of 2016, work has been focused on reducing child and maternal mortality and morbidity, for which the Expanded Programme on Immunization has continued to be a backbone and an important entry point for broader integrated primary health care.
