ETS Security Overview – Liberia
The political status in Liberia is somewhat stable since the end of the civil war in 2003. The government has been working closely with the United Nations and other international entities to ensure stability within the country, which in turn has improved its overall strength and infrastructure.
Crime is an issue in Liberia where muggings, armed robbery, and assault are possible, especially in certain areas within Monrovia. Public transport can be dangerous due to the risk of assault or theft. Rape and other violent crime against women is a concern; traveling alone during evening hours can increase vulnerability. In addition, the Liberian National Police lack basic equipment and support. Therefore the response to an incident can be delayed, increasing risk.
Road conditions are generally poor outside the capital Monrovia. If traveling in remote regions arrange appropriate transport, such as an SUV to reduce the risk of breakdowns. Additionally, avoid driving at night as highway robbery is commonplace.
Medical services are extremely poor in Liberia with few trained medical personnel.
