Liberia suffered greatly during the 14 year civil war that tore the country apart.

The end of the Ebola epidemic was officially announced in 2018 by the World Health Organisation. The economy, which was greatly affected during the epidemic, is still struggling to recover. Chronic malnutrition also remains a persistent public health problem in Liberia.
