Empowering Resilience addresses a critical area of concern for all individuals, governments, and non-government organizations involved in international peace building and economic development: the rebuilding of health care systems in countries emerging from civil conflict. Professor Aaron Buseh sets a broad context for improving health care delivery in war-impacted African countries by presenting a clear and concise historical overview of Liberia, including it's political, economic, and cultural factors that led to social upheaval. Through understanding the organization, financing, and delivery of health care in Liberia, readers will be able to appreciate the analysis of the pre-war root causes of the civil conflict and a poorly functional pre-war health care system that Buseh effectively investigates. With a convincing argument, Buseh offers a strategic vision for reforming and reorganizing Liberia's health care system. A book that breaches many concerns steadily rising in today's society, Empowering Resilience is devoted to contributing to political stability by capitalizing on the resilience of the Liberian people who endured the civil conflict
