Advancing Partners & Communities held a regional workshop for leadership from Ebola survivor associations from Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea in Conakry, Guinea from March 27th to 29th, 2017.


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.

Ebola Survivors Find Strength through the National Survivor Network

Dr. Mamadou Oury Diallo, President of Guinea’s national network of Ebola survivor associations, Réseau National des Associations de Survivants d’Ebola de Guinée (RENASEG), is an Ebola survivor himself. Dr. Diallo gave up his job as a surgeon to lead the organization and help fellow survivors, who were shunned by their communities and left unemployed after recovering from Ebola. APC and International Medical Corps worked with RENASEG to develop leadership skills and organizational structures of the 23 member associations that represent Ebola survivors in Guinea.
