The Ebola Transmission Prevention & Survivor Services (ETP&SS) program included four components; country programs in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, and a regional program designed to share best practices and lessons learned.
ETP&SS assisted these governments to prevent further Ebola transmission, reduce stigma and other barriers to care for survivors when accessing health services, support the strengthening of needed specialty services, and build more resilient and self-sustaining health systems.
The regional program sought to ensure the sharing of lessons learned and best practices across the three countries and the region through meetings, exchanges and conferences with partners such as NIH, WHO, and the West African Consortium.
Funded by the Global Health Bureau through the Advancing Partners & Communities Project, John Snow Research & Training Institute implemented the program from July 2016 through July/August 2018.
