Founded by survivors of Liberia’s civil war, Tiyatien Health partners with the Liberian government to pioneer a model community health worker (CHW) system that is redefining how post-conflict nations rebuild rural public health services. Filling the massive health worker shortage in rural Liberia, our CHWs form a novel locally-led primary care workforce that delivers comprehensive home-based medical and social services -- providing access to care for the poorest of the poor.
