Additionally, she said their focus will also be on respiratory cases, treatments for pregnant women and children, as well as eye treatments, among others.
According to Ms. Justus, in the couple of days, the team will set up mobile clinics, across the county, where members of the medical team will conduct various medical treatments.
In remarks, Vice President Taylor thanked the team, stating that the government is delighted to have friends from the United States to attend to the health needs of Liberians.
She said the medical sector is challenged and, as such, having a huge delegation to provide free medical services is welcoming.
She, however, pledged to follow the workings of the group during their field activities, adding: “I am very impressed to see the medical team comprised of mostly females and we are happy to have you in our country and to support government’s efforts in the works of the medical sector.” .
