As the response moves towards recovery and long-term development planning, the perceptions of the younger generation on the crisis highlight their priorities for the future.

Une évaluation rapide des effets de la flambée d’Ebola sur la prestation et utilisation des services de santé génésique, maternelle, néonatale, et infantile en Guinée

Barry A, Barden O’Fallon J, Hazerjian J, Brodish P, (2015)


La Guinée a été le point zéro de la flambée récente de la maladie à virus Ebola. Le taux de mortalité attribuée à Ebola en Guinée était de 66 %, nettement plus élevé que les taux des deux autres pays ouest-africains les plus affectés : la Sierra Leone (32 %) et le Liberia (45 %). Face à la fermeture des cliniques, aux patients qui évitent les établissements sanitaires de peur de contracter Ebola et aux patients présentant des symptômes semblables à ceux d’Ebola qu’on renvoie chez eux, les experts en matière de santé s’inquiètent que d’autres maladies, telles que le paludisme, la pneumonie et la fièvre typhoïde, ne seront pas soignées, et que des soins de routine comme ceux qui favorisent la santé maternelle et infantile ne seront pas fournis.

Ebola Response in Liberia: Community health volunteers

Hiemstra, Nienke, Eds.: Oxfam, (2015)


When Ebola hit Liberia in 2014, an atmosphere of fear and confusion contributed to the spread of the virus by making people unwilling to come forward for testing and treatment. Oxfam trained and equipped community health volunteers to go door-to-door, giving information and advice, encouraging anyone showing symptoms to go for tests, and keeping their family members informed about the progress of their treatment. The approach won the trust of communities and helped to slow the spread of the disease. This case study gives an overview of the programme, including aims, results and a personal story.
