However, presenting their petition, the group of health workers argue that such acts of violence against healthcare professionals not only undermine their morale but also compromise the quality of healthcare services provided to the community.
The petition calls for a thorough investigation into the matter and for appropriate legal action to be taken against those responsible.
The petition also highlights the need for improved security measures within healthcare facilities to protect healthcare workers from such incidents in the future. It emphasizes that the safety and well-being of health workers are paramount in ensuring the effective delivery of healthcare services to the community.
The petition was received by Liberia's Health Minister Dr. Williemena Jallah. She promised that the matter would be investigated, ensuring that appropriate action would be taken against any individual found guilty of perpetrating such unlawful flogging of health personnel.
As the investigation unfolds, the eyes of the community and the nation remain fixed on Bong County, awaiting justice for Alison Kollie and a resolution to the broader issue of violence against healthcare workers.
