The Ebola outbreak demonstrated a clear lack of preparedness from the global health and humanitarian system for an outbreak of infectious disease.

La pandémie de type Ebola qui a sévi en 2014-16 a mis en évidence le rôle crucial que jouent les agents de santé communautaires (ASC) dans la prévention et la réaction aux états d’urgence sanitaires et aussi à l’efficacité de leur prise en charge.
The Ebola pandemic of 2014-16 demonstrated the crucial role of the community health workforce in preventing, responding to, and effectively treating health emergencies. As the West Africa region rebuilds its health systems after Ebola, countries and communities have identified a need to develop strategies and plans to embed the role of the community health worker (CHW) as a foundation of an effective healthcare system.
