Just chatting to Dr. Emmanuel Amegashi, President of the Society of Family Physicians of Liberia (SOFPOL) and former chairman of Family Medicine at the West African College of Physicians’ (WACP). Liberia is a country of 4m people. Health data in 2012 revealed that there were approximately two hundred fifteen (215) registered and licensed physicians in the country. There ±30 general practitioners (incl. 15 family physicians). Family medicine is recognised by the Liberian College of Physicians and Surgeons.  In July 2017, the ELWA Hospital launched a Family Medicine Residency training program for Liberian physicians who desire to care for patients from birth until death. Training Liberia’s Next Generation of Doctors and Nurses is a priority and in which family medicine is playing an important role.
