Event Details

Overview:

The global effort to respond to the 2014-2016 Ebola outbreak was visibly partitioned by colonial-era ties with aid and support flowing from the United Kingdom to Sierra Leone, the United States to Liberia, and France to Guinea. Subsequently the experiences and lessons learned from Guinea are rarely represented in the English speaking countries amid discussions about preventing and preparing for the next major epidemic. Yet, it was in Guinea that the plague began, gripping seven out of eight of its regions, and then spreading to Liberia and Sierra Leone.

 

The insight from Guinea is imperative to shaping the way forward for epidemic and pandemic preparedness. This event will provide insight into the complex institutional relationships and cross-disciplinary realities that occurred during the response.

 

Chaired by: Francesco Cecchi, London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine

 

Speakers: This event will feature presentations from Dr Sakoba Keita (Former National Coordinator of the Guinea Ebola Response), Dr Boubacar Diallo (former WHO Ebola Response Surveillance Coordinator) and Dr Axelle Ronsse (MSF Operational Center of Brussels), as well as partner organisations involved in the response.

 

Full programme details will follow.
