MONROVIA – The Office of First Lady Kartumu Y. Boakai, over the weekend, held fruitful discussions with the United Nations Population Fund, UNFPA Liberia Country Team, headed by Madam Bidisha Pillai, on a number of issues surrounding women and girls’ empowerment.

During the meeting, Mrs. Boakai commended UNFPA, noting that its various interventions, particularly in ending maternal mortality and teenage pregnancy, among others, remain fundamental to alleviating some of the major challenges confronting women and girls.

Mrs. Boakai, however, stressed the need for more collaborative efforts between the government and its many partners, which is why she noted that such strategic engagements with relevant stakeholders were paramount.
