Liberia: Regulations for the Appropriate Use and Conditions of Alternative Care for Children

Government of Liberia, Ministry of Health and Social Welfare

These Regulations and Tools are designed to create the basis for reforming welfare institutions, thereby protecting children and providing opportunities for those living in alternative care. They were adopted in 2010 and provide the basis through which the Government of Liberia, through the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare (MoHSW) will regulate all child welfare institutions, including orphanages and alternative care arrangements such as foster care and kinship.
