Interagency Collaboration on Ebola - Situation Report No. 08 (6 October 2015)



  • In Kindia, Guinea, the National Coordination is hosting an Ebola Survivors Workshop on 5-7 October. The workshop will articulate a Response Strategy to support the more than 1,300 people who survived the disease.
  • Following heavy rains in Sierra Leone in mid-September, predominantly in the Freetown area, two temporary settlement areas were established to house the affected people. Infection prevention and control (IPC) measures have been established in each camp, along with hygiene messaging and social mobilisation, to minimise the risk of EVD and other infections within the camp.
