Challenge

The Ebola outbreak in West Africa is the worst outbreak the world has ever seen. It is affecting Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Liberia, all of which have compromised healthcare systems and lack essential resources. In Liberia, the situation has gone from bad to worse. Attempts to contain the virus aren't working and measures like quarantines are perpetuating issues of government mistrust among the Liberian people. Current efforts lack the resources and leadership needed to stem the outbreak.

Solution

This coalition of government, community, and NGO partners will work together to stop Ebola from further devastating Liberia's vulnerable communities. The objectives of this plan are to provide information to communities about Ebola and coach them on prevention, identify the sick, treat the ill, bury the dead, reintegrate survivors, and support the families of the affected. Ebola is a complex and devastating disease, but the cure is clear - education and effective outreach and support.

Long-Term Impact

Today, the epidemic is raging unchecked. Immediate and sustained action is required to stop the spread of the disease. Ebola requires non-stop, ongoing pursuit until we reach our goal - no new cases. Reaching this goal means that Liberians can start working again, children can start going to school again, and the country can begin to recover and learn from this disastrous outbreak. With your help, we can save lives and restore safety and security to communities in Liberia.
