KEY DEVELOPMENTS

  • As of June 24, the governments of Guinea and Liberia had not reported a confirmed Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) case since April 6. The countries’ March/April clusters—both linked to an EVD survivor in Guinea’s N’Zérékoré Prefecture—included seven confirmed and three probable cases in Guinea and three confirmed cases in Liberia.

  • The UN World Health Organization (WHO) declared an end to Guinea’s and Liberia’s recent EVD clusters on June 1 and 9, respectively, following 42-day periods of heightened surveillance in each country.

  • USAID/OFDA recently provided the International Medical Corps (IMC) and the International Rescue Committee (IRC) with nearly $6.9 million to bolster infection prevention control (IPC) and rapid response capacity in Sierra Leone. In addition, USAID/OFDA provided the French Red Cross (FRC) with more than $1.6 million to support treatment capacity for EVD and other infectious diseases in Guinea.
