Insight & Analysis

ABOUT THIS PAGE:

On this page, we provide insights and analysis of social issues in Liberia. We focus on the following:

Poverty and inequality: Liberia is one of the poorest countries in the world, with a high level of income inequality. The COVID-19 pandemic has only exacerbated these issues, and it's important to analyze the impact on vulnerable populations, such as women and children.

 

Education: Liberia's education system faces many challenges, including poor infrastructure, inadequate funding, and a shortage of qualified teachers. An analysis of the state of education and potential solutions could have significant implications for the country's future.

 

Health: Liberia's health system also faces numerous challenges, including a shortage of healthcare workers, poor infrastructure, and inadequate funding. The country has also been impacted by disease outbreaks such as Ebola and COVID-19. An analysis of the state of health and potential solutions could have significant implications for the country's well-being.

 

Gender issues: Liberia has made progress in advancing women's rights, but there is still much work to be done to address issues such as gender-based violence, discrimination, and unequal access to education and economic opportunities.

 

Youth employment: Liberia has a large and growing youth population, but the country's economy has struggled to provide employment opportunities for young people. Analyzing potential solutions to address youth unemployment could have a significant impact on the country's economic and social well-being.
