The Ebola response represents a significant delivery and public health challenge, requiring true global collaboration. In this short term community, members are encouraged to share resources, information and support to aid colleagues on the front lines in their efforts to respond to this new epidemic.
Beginning in January 2015, members of the GHDonline Ebola Response community
participated in a wide-ranging discussion on the challenges of providing care to Ebola-infected individuals, and the effectiveness of current and potential interventions.
This summary consists of discussions, suggestions and unanswered questions, respectively, grounded within thematic sections. The suggestions derived from the various discussion points may be supported by some or all of the GHDonline discussants, peer reviewed literature, or established protocols. This document is not meant to take the place of established guidelines; rather it represents the lived experience of numerous clinicians and researchers in their roles as observers and participants in the Ebola Zaire Makona
outbreak of 2013-2015.
