Harvard School of Public Health, JSI, and the Liberia MOH conducted interviews with 108 respondents to EVD in Liberia. They found that resilience improved more when prioritized by global and national actors compared to community leaders and local health actors. They concluded that full resilience has not yet been achieved and will take sustained collaboration across these sectors.
