Lessons Learned from 2014–2016 Ebola Outbreak in Guinea: A Review of RCCE Related Publications

The Ebola outbreak in Guinea began in December 2013 and was declared over in June 2016, resulting in 3,814 cases and 2,544 deaths. CDC conducted a search for peer-reviewed literature, news articles. The report is a review of the 46 published reports of Ebola-related activities undertaken during the 2013–2016 outbreak in Guinea. It is organized into nine sections, which roughly parallel six Ebola response pillars (contact tracing, Ebola treatment centres, safe and dignified burials, vaccination, infection prevention and control, risk communication/community engagement), and three topics that cut across pillars (response structure/processes, use of health services, reintegration of survivors). In each section, statements and links to the original reports are categorized into “what worked,” “challenges and problems,” and “lessons learned.”
