After the Outbreak: Analysis of the post-Ebola recovery period of Sierra Leone and Liberia with lessons for future health emergencies

The Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) initially broke out in Guinea in late 2013 before spreading to Liberia and Sierra Leone in early 2014. Now that the Ebola epidemic has been officially declared over, the situation in these West African countries has fallen from the media spotlight.

This study, jointly commissioned by World Vision and Tearfund, evaluates Sierra Leone and Liberia’s road to recovery by analysing their post-Ebola policies (particularly those for survivors and affected persons) and how these have been implemented in practice. The purpose of this is not only to make recommendations to aid the full recovery of Sierra Leone and Liberia, but also to record lessons learnt for the recovery period in future health emergencies.
