On 25-27 April 2022, the DCP3 team conducted an applied training on Health Interventions and Prioritisation Tool (HIPtool) in Buchanan, Liberia. The three-day workshop was attended by 12 senior technical personnel from the Ministry of Health of Liberia and partner organisations. The training aimed to familiarise participants with the HIPTool, and demonstrate what local data can be collected to run HIPtool analyses and what questions HIPtool can answer at a national level to inform priority setting.
On 28-29 March, 2022, the Ministry of Health of Liberia and DCP3 organized a workshop to assess the existing health services in Liberia against the DCP3 recommended essential Universal Health Coverage package. The workshop is part of the Ministry’s collaboration with the DCP3 Country Translation initiative in revising the Essential Package of Health Services (EPHS) in line with population health needs and available financial resources. The outcome of this exercise will inform the prioritization process for choosing and optimizing the EPHS interventions.
The DCP3 Country Translation at LSHTM established collaboration with the Ministry of Health of Liberia on priority setting and development of Universal Health Coverage Essential Packages of Health Services (EPHS). The revised EPHS will strive to accelerate progress towards Universal Health Coverage by improving access to affordable quality health services and narrowing the gap for most vulnerable populations.
