Abstract: This MAP study aimed at assessing the availability of condoms, WaterGuard and other household water treatment products, oral and injectable contraceptives and malaria treatment drugs throughout the country. This information can be vital for the sales and marketing teams in prioritizing their efforts, both for the two existing PSI products and as a baseline for the distribution of two potential new health products (ACTs and oral contraceptives). Up to now, no such availability studies have been conducted in Liberia; results are thus expected to be of use to a range of key stakeholders in the public health sector of the country, particularly to the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare, the National AIDS and STI Control Program, the National Malaria Control Program, and public health NGOs.
