Coca-Cola and partners now working in seven African countries, improving
Liberia is a country on the West African coast. It has a population of over 4,5 million people. In 2014, West Africa experienced the largest outbreak of Ebola in history. Liberia had the highest death toll of the region, with 4,810 deaths from the disease.
Following the Ebola epidemic, the capacity of the Liberian National Drug Store to reliably store and distribute medicines was devastated. The Global Fund and USAID engaged Project Last Mile to provide technical assistance and capacity-building support to the Liberian Ministry of Health to build the long-term resilience of the system.
We are leveraging the Coca-Cola System to share the process the Coca-Cola Company uses to design and manage effective supply chains to assist Liberia in recovering from the devastating impacts of the Ebola epidemic.
