$7.2 million project will address a national shortage of health-care workers in Liberia
Date:10/31/2011

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Indiana University today (Oct. 31) announced that it is partnering with the University of Liberia and the University of Massachusetts Medical School to administer a transformative $7.2 million project that will address a national shortage of healthcare workers in Liberia, an African nation with which IU has had long-standing ties.

The partnership will implement the Center for Excellence in Health and Life Sciences (CEHLS) at the University of Liberia (UL), which will develop new academic and research programs in biotechnology, public health, nurse-midwifery and pre-clinical training in medicine and pharmacology.

Funding the project is the U.S. Agency for International Development through Higher Education for Development (HED).

"Indiana University and the University of Liberia have produced well-outlined, comprehensive project objectives to improve Liberia's healthcare education," said HED Deputy Executive Director Jeanne-Marie Duval. "Their work to develop new undergraduate courses in health and life sciences will contribute to Liberia's important rebuilding efforts. These talented partners are prepared to train faculty and students, enhance educational institutions, and support healthier communities."

Dr. Emmet Dennis, president of the University of Liberia, will provide UL leadership for the project. The project being led by IU will be managed by its Center for International Education and Development Assistance, directed by Charles Reafsnyder, and at UMMS by Katherine Luzuriaga, associate provost, and Donna Gallagher, co-director, Global Health.

Partnership discussions between IU, UMMS, and the University of Liberia since 2008 have led to the development of a multi-disciplinary consortium of educators and health practitioners, which will include the IU School of Nursing, the IU School of Health, Physical Education and Recreation, and staff of the IU Center for Genomics and Bioinformatics.
