Introduction 

The largest Ebola outbreak in history started in Guinea in December 2013, spread to Liberia by March 2015 and into Sierra Leone by May 2015. The World Health Organization (WHO) declared the outbreak a public health emergency of international concern in August 2014. Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea had not experienced an Ebola outbreak before and so understanding of prevention measures and trust in public information was extremely low.

Executive Summary

A. The Ebola Outbreak as a Wake-up Call

The 2014 Ebola outbreak was a human tragedy that took thousands of lives, caused tremendous suffering, and left deep wounds in communities in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia. And yet, it was preventable. Much more could have been done to halt its spread earlier. The crisis must serve as a wake-up call for increased global action to prevent future health crises.

1. Background

The Ebola outbreak in 2014 and 2015 in West Africa and the repercussions it had at international level have substantially changed our perception and understanding of global health security. In this context, DG SANTE, together with the Luxembourg Presidency, organised a conference on "lessons learned for public health from the Ebola outbreak in West Africa – how to improve preparedness and response in the EU for future outbreaks”.

The event took place in Mondorf-les-Bains (Luxembourg) from Monday 12 October to Wednesday 14 October 2015.

INTRODUCTION

Box 1. Effective communication is critical from the onset of any humanitarian emergency. The information needs of people affected by crises often remain largely unmet, however, and not enough capacity and resources are dedicated to address them meaningfully (BBC World Service Trust, 2008, Internews, 2011, CDAC/ACAPS, 03/2014).
