The legacy of Ebola

This year we have ensured that we learned from the way that we responded to the 2014 Ebola crisis in Sierra Leone and Liberia. Our face-to-face efforts within the communities that stood out. We gained valuable experience on how to respond to future epidemics, because we now understand more about the huge impact such events can have on cultural norms and practices, some of which reduce the likelihood that people will seek treatment even in the face of public danger.
