A 14-year-long civil war that lasted until 2003 destroyed large swathes of Liberia’s infrastructure and economy. However, hope was in sight: Ellen Johnson Sirleaf became the first female president in an African country in 2006. In addition, she received the Nobel Peace Prize. Just as the country began to recover from the effects of the civil war, the next crisis hit: the outbreak of Ebola in March 2014. More than 11,000 people died during the severe epidemic. Establishing a functional healthcare system and reintegration and rehabilitation programmes for survivors will make it easier to start over again.
