Madam Mary Broh

Monrovia, Liberia – President George Manneh Weah has continued to demonstrate political will in creating the necessary and sufficient environment for the government to deal with the coronavirus pandemic in Liberia.

This followed the appointment with immediate effect of Madam Mary Broh as the National Response Coordinator for the Executive Committee on Coronavirus (ECOC) in Liberia.

An Executive Mansion statement said in her new role, the former Monrovia City Mayor will provide supervision toward a single set of national strategic objectives for defeating the Coronavirus disease.

Madam Brown will also coordinate the National COVID-19 multi-sectorial response plan, in coordination with the United Nations (UN), donor partners, Ministry of Health and National Public Health Institute of Liberia (NPHIL).

At the same time, the President has also appointed Finda Bundo as the National Compliance Manager of ECOC.

Madam Bundo is charged with the responsibility of monitoring the overall allocation and disbursement of the response logistics and resources.

Madam Bundo will in consultation with the National Response Coordinator, ensure timely delivery and accounting for supplies directed to the fight against Coronavirus in the country.

Both appointments, which have a term of nine months, became necessary following recommendations made by the United Nations, in particular the World Health Organization, which were aimed at further enhancing the national response as cases begin to spike.

It is also based on a decision from a consultative meeting held between the Special Presidential Advisory Committee on Coronavirus (S{ACOC) and partners.

During the discussions, a decision was made to move away from the current system of advisory and consultative meetings to operational and community-oriented outreach. Both persons have the full support and backing of the UN.

Meanwhile the President has directed that Madam Broh and Bundo liaise with health authorities on the Incident Management Team and heed their counsel, where necessary. The appointees will report directly to the President.
