On January 15th 2016, a new Ebola case has been confirmed in Sierra Leone by WHO, 2 monthes after the country had been declared Ebola Free by WHO.

On january 14th, Liberia the third country most affected by this epidemic has been declared Ebola free.

Guinea is still in the 90-day period of heightened surveillance, prescribed by WHO to ensure that any new cases are identified quickly before they can spread to other people, after WHO declared the end of Ebola virus transmission in the Republic of Guinea on the 29th of December 2015.

 

We must remember that the Ebola epidemic has killed 11 300 victims out of the 28 600 people infected in West Africa.

In these three countries, the aim is now to rebuild and strengthen health systems and health services significantly affected by the epidemic.

Since the summer 2014, Solthis was mobilized to improve the protection of health workers, the hospital hygiene and to promote continuity of care for patients with chronic diseases such as HIV / AIDS.
