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.

Renovating and Equipping Key Health Facilities to Improve Patient Care

Guinea’s fragile health system was deeply affected by the Ebola outbreak, which exposed the need for basic infrastructure improvements. At the bustling Ignace Deen Hospital in Conakry, APC renovated restrooms, crumbling staircases, walls, and ceilings, making it a safer, more hygienic, and more welcoming environment for patients. With these improvements, the hospital can now practice infection prevention and control and provide better care for Ebola survivors and the general population.

Preventing Resurgence of Ebola with Community-based Surveillance

Every week, Ebola survivors come together with health workers and other community members in Guinea's hard-hit Kindia Region. They are part of the district’s sentinel site committee, which monitors the health and well-being of the area’s Ebola survivors. To prevent a resurgence of Ebola, APC helped establish 60 sentinel sites across Guinea, which enable the Ministry of Health to monitor illnesses in the Ebola survivor community and beyond. The sentinel sites allow for early detection and rapid response in the event of a suspected case.
