On January 30, 2018, Guinea’s National Network of Ebola survivors, Réseau National des Associations de Survivants d’Ebola de Guinée (RENASEG), celebrated the inauguration of its new headquarters in Conakry.

IMC is working to reduce or eliminate the risk of Ebola transmission from survivors to others and to ensure access to, and effective delivery of, health care and psychosocial services for survivors within three regions of Guinea: Conakry, Kindia and Nzérékoré, serving 952 survivors. IMC supports APC Guinea through three pillars of the SA-Ceint Strategy: (1) the survivor platform, (2) case management, and (3) biological follow-up components. The program will be implemented through a system of trainings, community engagement, capacity building, and technical support to EVD survivors.

The Ebola Transmission Prevention and Survivor Services Program (ETP & SS) launched in July 2016 and is operating under the umbrella of priorities set by USAID’s Global Health Ebola Team. The program works with ministries of health and nongovernmental organizations in regions of Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Guinea that are most affected by the Ebola outbreak.

We provide training and deliver emergency health care and related services to those affected by conflict, natural disaster and disease no matter where they are, no matter what the conditions. We train people in their communities, providing them the skills needed to recover, chart their own path to self-reliance and become effective First Responders themselves.
