INTRODUCTION

Overview of Response

In March 2014, Liberia was in the process of rebuilding its health system after decades of civil war—which had significantly damaged both the infrastructure and the population’s trust in the government—when the first Ebola Virus Disease (Ebola) case was identified in Lofa County. During the next year and a half, more than 10,670 people in the country would become infected, and more than 4,800 of them would die from the disease.
