The 2014–15 Ebola outbreak in West Africa was disruptive for the general health services in the affected countries. This study assessed the impact of the outbreak on the reported number and management of malaria in children under-five in rural Guinea.
Materials and methods
Malaria is one of the five main causes of mortality in the world among children under the age of five. In Sub-Saharan Africa, it is the primary cause. And yet malaria is an illness that can be avoided, and can easily be cured. It is the disease most frequently dealt with by MSF medical teams, who treated 2.5 million people for malaria in 2017.

Ce rapport présente les résultats d’une recherche sur l’intégrité de la réponse à la crise Ebola en Guinée ainsi que des éléments de comparaison avec la réponse en Sierra Leone, réalisée dans le cadre du projet CREATE (Collective Resolution to Enhance Accountability and Transparency in Emergencies) mené par Transparency International (TI) en partenariat avec Humanitarian Outcomes (HO) et le Groupe URD.
In 2014, Guinea was declared ground zero for the Ebola outbreak, and before it was brought under control in January 2016, there were more than 3,300 confirmed Ebola cases in the country.
At the height of the Ebola epidemic, hundreds of students, taxi drivers and shopkeepers volunteered to bury their dead neighbours. A new study finds their actions stopped over 10,000 people from being infected with the disease.
