Action contre la Faim France

About : Action contre la Faim

Within the last decades, Liberia has experienced three significant catastrophes that have left devastating impacts on the country’s health system, economy, and social structures. Despite significant progress in maternal and child health in recent years, the Liberia health system still faces challenges including high maternal mortality. Liberia also has some of the worst food security indicators in the world for a peaceful country with over 30% of children under 5 being chronically malnourished.

ACF has been present in Liberia since 1990 and has since became one of the main humanitarian and development actors in the country. ACF’s work in Liberia has evolved significantly over the years from emergency response to longer-term development, focusing on nutrition, health, mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS) as well as food security and livelihoods (FSL), water sanitation and hygiene (WASH), and advocacy to address the underlying and root causes of nutrition insecurity.

ACF’s team (around 40 staff) implements integrated multi-sector projects to strengthen local capacities and systems, to ensure access to healthcare and to improve food security by strongly collaborating with local civil society and national NGOs as well as the Government of Liberia while also maintaining emergency response capacities. In 2024, ACF is launching a new three-year health system strengthening project in three counties, thus extending its geographic coverage.
