BACKGROUND

Aspen Medical operated a private clinic in Liberia’s capital Monrovia since early 2014 which provided support to the Monrovian public healthcare system as Ebola took hold across West Africa.

The company was subsequently subcontracted by PAE on behalf of USAID to provide clinical management services to four Ebola Treatment Units (ETUs) in Liberia located at Barclayville, Bopolu, Gbediah Town and Zorzor. The ETUs had a combined capacity of 100 beds.

An international team of healthcare professionals and support staff were led by an American team of senior clinicians from Aspen Medical’s US subsidiary.

To date, 10,666 people in Liberia have been infected with Ebola and 4,769 people have died, making it the worst affected country in the region.
