This toolkit is made possible through the generous support of the American people through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) under the Advancing Partners & Communities (APC) cooperative agreement number AID-OAA-A-12-00047, funded October 1, 2012, and implemented by JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc., in partnership with FHI 360. The information provided in this toolkit is not official U.S. Government information and does not represent the views or positions of USAID or the U.S. Government.

The APC Project focuses on advancing and supporting community programs that seek to improve the overall health of communities and achieve other health-related impacts, especially in relationship to family planning. APC provides global leadership for community-based programming, executes and manages small- and medium-sized sub-awards, supports procurement reform by preparing awards for execution by USAID, and builds technical capacity of organizations to implement effective programs.

Following the Post-Ebola Recovery of Health Services program in Sierra Leone, which began in mid-2015, APC received additional funding from USAID’s “Ebola Response and Preparedness” program1. The Ebola Transmission Prevention & Survivor Services (ETP&SS) program officially launched in July 2016, operating in Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone. The program’s high level objectives included working with the three Governments and other stakeholders to prevent further Ebola transmission, support clinical care, and reduce stigma and other barriers for survivors to access health care. A smaller regional program, focused on sharing lessons learned and best practices, was funded in September 2016. The toolkit included herein was part of the work of the regional program.
