Guinea

Brief

Selon les recherches menées par les Instituts nationaux de la santé des ÉtatsUnis (National Institutes of Health [NIH]), les guéris de la maladie à virus Ébola (MVE) peuvent conserver le virus dans certains fluides corporels (notamment le sperme, le lait maternel, le liquide céphalorachidien) jusqu’à 32 mois après des résultats négatifs au test Ébola.

Brief

According to research conducted by NIH, survivors of Ebola virus disease can retain the virus in certain bodily fluids (i.e., sperm, breast milk, spinal fluid) for up to 32 months after testing negative for Ebola. Researchers in Liberia presented these findings during a regional meeting organized by APC in December 2016, thereby demonstrating the value of continuing surveillance of Ebola survivors and the need for regular testing for viral persistence in the semen of male survivors.

L’épidémie d’Ébola a gravement affecté le système de santé publique de la Guinée, laissant dans son sillage plus de 1 200 guéris, dont un grand nombre continue à avoir des problèmes médicaux liés au virus.

The Ebola epidemic severely impacted Guinea’s public health system and left over 1,200 survivors, many of whom continue to have medical problems related to the virus. From 2016–2018, APC, in collaboration with Guinea’s Ministry of Health, supported surveillance of Ebola survivors and their immediate contacts, rehabilitated and equipped health facilities in the regions hardest hit by Ebola, enhanced health system capacity for managing Ebola survivor care, and worked to reduce stigma and discrimination against survivors.

The Advancing Partners & Communities (APC) invites targeted organizations with experience in Ebola-related health programs in Guinea, as well as demonstrable experience in the implementation of the government SA-Ceint strategy, to submit applications in support of the Ministry of Health (MOH) to implement the SA-Ceint strategy to address the risk of resurgence associated with possible extended EBO viral persistence in survivors, while at the same time providing care needed by survivors.
