2014 and 2015 have been two years of strong mobilisation for SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL's teams, who have had to take urgent action regarding too many crises. Feedback on two years of intense campaigns.
The Ebola epidemic has been affecting West Africa since February 2014. SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL has been working alongside Doctors of the World Spain in the management of a treatment center in the town of Moyamba in Sierra Leone. Outreach officers Steven Matenday and Medlin Koroma visited some of the local schools where SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL has been implementing hygiene promotion sessions and provided several items in this context.
“An effective system”
Since February 2014, an EVD (Ebola Virus Disease) epidemic has been affecting West Africa. Since the beginning of the outbreak, and during the first phase of the response, the emphasis has been placed on the containment of the epidemic through the case management and isolation of patients. Following MSF and WHO guidelines for EVD response, SOLIDARITES INTERNATIONAL launched a WASH program in November 2014 to support the management on an Ebola Treatment Centre (ETC) in the district of Moyamba in Sierra Leone.
Si le nombre de morts attribués à l’épidémie Ebola vient de dépasser les 10 000, le nombre de cas confirmés est à la baisse dans les trois pays les plus touchés par l’épidémie, dont la Sierra Leone. Sandra Lamarque, à la tête de notre Cellule Ebola, explique comment SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL adapte ses activités face à cette nouvelle phase de l’épidémie.
