Dr. Francis Kateh, KBNF Partner, Appointed Deputy Minister of Health & Chief Medical Officer of Liberia
President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf has appointed Dr. Francis Kateh Deputy Minister of Health and Chief Medical Officer for Liberia.
Join KBNF as we extend our heartfelt congratulations to Dr. Francis Kateh, as he has accepted the position of Deputy Minister of Health and Chief Medical Officer for Liberia. Not a position for the faint at heart, especially in the aftermath of the nationally grave Ebola crisis, Francis has a unique opportunity to have a key leadership role in rebuilding the entire Liberian health care system.
Francis deeply cares for his people. Heart Power! at its finest. Dr. Kolee writes: “We are very elated by this and hope that he will exert leadership that will affect the entire country.”
As the Ebola crisis winds down, the established community centres are expected to remain open to support patient care. Dr. Kateh reports that he is earmarking which clinics and hospitals around the country will receive KBNF containers filled to the gills with donated hospital beds, equipment and medical supplies. He believes that these containers will transform these vulnerable centres and bring hope and healing to a hurting nation.
His gratitude is palpable. He is anxious to return to Canada and share the stories and photos of the impact our container shipments are making in Liberia. We’ll keep you posted.
