This national strategic plan focuses on preventing new HIV infections in Liberia in order to maintain a low HIV prevalence in the next six years. The plan aims to reduce new HIV infections by 50% by 2020; intensify the provision of quality and accessible HIV prevention information and services for key populations; and also accelerate actions to eliminate mother-to-child transmission of HIV by 2020, including placing positive mothers on lifelong antiretroviral therapy (Option B+) as the preferred regime of treatment for HIV positive pregnant women.

The National Multisectoral Strategic Plan for Family Planning (2014-2020) aims to ensure a sustained increase in modern contraceptive use by Congolese women and men who wish to use contraception, progressively decrease the use of less efficient traditional methods, and respond to the currently high unmet need for family planning. It provides a multisectoral approach with cooperative efforts from several ministries and donors, national and international nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), and faith-based organizations (FBOs). These efforts are coordinated by the National Program for Reproductive Health (PNSR), the structure mandated by the Ministry of Public Health to promote and coordinate activities related to reproductive health.
World Health Organization Guidelines on Transforming and scaling up health professionals' education and training: Recommendation -- National governments should introduce accreditation of health professional education where it does not exist and strengthen it where it does exist. Accreditation, if properly used, is a key tool for quality management of professional education and for ensuring that graduates have the competencies that correspond to accepted professional standards and to the needs of the population. The alignment of accreditation with health goals is one of the four enabling actions that contribute to scaling up the education of health professionals. Accreditation is particularly important at a time when private health professional education is proliferating, often in an unregulated environment.
These guidelines call for new approaches in health professionals’ education. Approaches are needed that transform systems and encourage the move away from the traditional focus on tertiary care hospitals to initiatives that foster community engagement. The guidelines recommendations support and advocate for implementation considerations in efforts to involve communities and countries collectively for this transformational change in health professionals’ education. It is the intent of the Guidelines to encourage educational and training institutions to foster and enhance the relational activity and the interaction and planning between education, health and other sectors.
