Without Hesitation: Shakira’s GHSP Journey

Zack LangwayBlog, Liberia, Midwifery

“I did not hesitate to accept an invitation to serve as visiting midwifery faculty in Liberia with the Global Health Service Partnership (GHSP), a public-private collaboration with Seed Global Health, the Peace Corps, and the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief. For me, it was a dream come true to be able to support the goal of strengthening health education and delivery in Africa.”

Shakira Franklyn, a volunteer faculty member through GHSP, served in Liberia delivering care and partnering with local colleagues to strengthen midwifery in Liberia.
