APC’s Ebola Transmission Prevention and Survivor Services (ETP&SS) program works with ministries of health and nongovernmental organizations in the three countries that were most affected by the Ebola virus disease (EVD) outbreak: Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Guinea.

Building Resilient Health Systems

Key Objectives of ETP&SS in Liberia

  • Strengthen coordination and management of activities for Ebola survivors through the National Ebola Survivor Secretariat and the National Ebola Survivor Network.
  • Improve access for Ebola survivors to health services through health facilities that care for survivors, and combat stigma and discrimination among providers.
  • Build health system capacity to provide specialized health services for common complications among survivors.

Primary Activities

  • Support the establishment and institutionalization of the National Ebola Survivor Secretariat, and strengthen the National Ebola Survivor’s Network’s capacity to coordinate and disseminate information to the EVD survivors.
  • Conduct survivor population and services mapping exercises.
  • Develop a referral pathway framework to facilitate health service delivery.
  • Support training and mentoring of medical students, residents, and mid-level health workers in sub-specialty clinical areas that affect EVD survivors.
  • Renovate target health facilities.

Health Areas

  • Mitigate risk of resurgence of the EVD.
  • Ensure the effective delivery of health care and psychosocial support services that respond to survivor needs.
  • Support strengthening of critical health services used by survivors through direct assistance to health facilities.

With help from USAID, APC enabled Liberian Ebola survivors to receive life changing cataract surgery in a program that also contributed to research on the persistence of Ebola virus in the eyes of survivors. This knowledge can help guide future outbreak response and helps us understand how the Ebola virus affects survivors many months after recovery. This complex program was made possible through a unique collaboration of faith-based organizations, universities, non-governmental organizations and government institutions.
