UL-PIRE has a wealth of experience in the delivery of health systems research projects as well as those that span other disciplines such as agriculture, water, sanitation and education. Project evaluation, survey development and administration are UL-PIRE’s core competences and strengths. With a strong focus on ethics and community engagement, UL-PIRE provide unique and innovative perspectives from the Liberian context. UL-PIRE is the first HIV/STD prevention research centre to be established at the University of Liberia. The goal of the centre is to conduct prevention and clinical based projects in infectious diseases (e.g., HIV/AIDS, STDs, TB, NTDs, etc). The research centre was very instrumental during the Ebola outbreak and participated in a Unicef-sponsored study on Knowledge, Attitude & Practices towards the Ebola virus disease in Liberia .
