About this item

The Ebola virus outbreak ravaged parts of West Africa during 2013–16, particularly in Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone. The epidemic hadvery high human, social, and economic costs; food became scarce, schools were shut down, and ongoing development programs shifted to support the immediate response efforts. The rapid spread of the disease demonstrated the urgent need to invest in health systems and to establish surveillance and preparedness programs for long-term resilience.Strengthening Post-Ebola Health Systems was initiated when Ebola was still raging, in 2015. The book focuses on some of the most critical needs for public health resilience and emergency preparedness: adequate fiscal space, an effective health workforce, and ongoing disease surveillance. Drawing on the Post-Ebola Planning Strategies of Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Liberia, the book highlights key strategies and investment opportunities that governments and partners might leverage to make health systems more efficient, resilient, and sustainable.The lessons from this book are expected to help guide efforts to rebuild the health systems of Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone, but they can also be applied to other low-income countries in Sub-Saharan Africa. This book will be of interest to policy makers, health practitioners, and development partners who support pandemic preparedness and health-system-strengthening efforts around the world.
