The PAC is expected to arrive in Liberia on February 1, 2013 and depart the country on February 15, 2013. The medical team consists of ten members. All necessary arrangements have been concluded with the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare to provide adequate facility to ease the work of the visiting team of PAC.
