Filovirus Haemorrhagic Fever Guideline

Esther Sterk, Eds.: Medecins Sans Frontieres, (2008)

The Filovirus Haemorrhagic Fever (FHF) Guideline gives a short explanation and overview of all intervention strategy components needed during a Médecins sans Frontières (MSF) intervention in Marburg and Ebola viral haemorrhagic fever outbreaks. It is a practical summary of the MSF Ebola & Marburg Outbreak Control Guidance Manual, 2007 version 2.0, with the ‘lessons learned’ added from the Ebola outbreaks in 2007 in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Uganda. It is useful as preparation for MSF expatriates and national staff going to work in an intervention, while the Guidance Manual will remain the exclusive ‘Guidance’ to provide all detailed information needed to implement and continue the intervention strategies and activities. Any remarks or comments are welcome to be able to update, adapt and improve the guidelines according to the needs and evolution of Ebola and Marburg interventions.
