Pour prévenir d’éventuelles épidémies de MVE grâce à une détection précoce et une riposte rapide, l’APC et le titulaire de la subvention, l’International Medical Corps, ont aidé le Ministère guinéen de la santé à créer un système d’alerte précoce utilisant un programme ciblé de surveillance des sites sentinelles. Le programme de surveillance vise à détecter toute montée de fièvre et d’autres symptômes ou maladies chez les survivants d’Ébola et leurs contacts immédiats.
The CHS Catalog draws from policies and related documentation across 25 countries with specific attention to family planning. It is intended for policymakers, program managers, researchers, and donors interested in learning more about the current state of community health systems.
The tool provides views of indicators related to the sexual & reproductive health of people ages 10 to 24 years in select countries in Asia and the Middle East.

To prevent future EVD outbreaks through early detection and rapid response, APC and its grantee, International Medical Corps, supported the MOH of Guinea in creating an early warning system using a targeted sentinel site surveillance model. The surveillance program was designed to detect any increase in fevers or other symptoms in both Ebola survivors and their immediate contacts.
L'épidémie d’Ebola du 2014-2016 a affecté trois pays principaux, deux anglophones (le Libéria et le Sierra Leone) et un francophone (la Guinée). Le programme d’APC a réussi en partageant les document et les recherches parmi les trois bureaux pays et les parties prenantes locales, malgré la différence des langues. Les stratégies clées sont expliquées dans le document.
Guinea’s health system was severely impacted by the Ebola epidemic. Learn more about the health facility assessment and project interventions implemented by the ETP&SS program to help strengthen the health system.
In November 2016, the ETP&SS program conducted a health facility assessment to understand the overall capacity of eight pre-identified health facilities. The assessment informed the development of a comprehensive facility activity plan, which captured service delivery, capacity building, and system strengthening activities. When implemented in a participatory manner, infrastructure interventions (physical, equipment, and water supply) can enhance government ownership of the decision-making process for quality of care.
Lessons learned from Guinea’s sentinel site approach to surveillance of Ebola survivors for preventing and containing future outbreaks and monitoring the health status of survivors.
The 2014-2016 Ebola epidemic primarily affected three countries, two anglophone (Liberia and Sierra Leone) and one francophone (Guinea). APC’s program succeeded in sharing documents and research findings among its three country offices and local counterparts despite the ever present language barrier. Key strategies are addressed in the document.
This tool is designed to measure staff capacity, infrastructure capacity, and equipment capacity in a limited resources health facility. The results from the assessment inform the type and level of support an implementing partner might provide to health facilities. In this case, the aim of the support provided was to improve the quality of medical services for Ebola survivors. As such, priority was placed on improving areas most pertinent to survivor needs.
