Strenghtening of Health Systems

An outbreak of Ebola virus was declared by WHO in Guinea in March 2014. This followed several deaths from hemorrhagic fevers in the preceding 12 months which were confirmed as cases of Ebola by the Ministry of Health of Guinea. In May 2014, the outbreak reached the capital, Conakry, and soon spread into neighboring countries. The WHO mobilized resources to combat the spread of disease in West Africa though awareness campaigns. With funding by Global Fund, CRS undertook the rehabilitation, improvement and expansion of existing health infrastructure facilities in Guinea, with the aim of increasing the functional efficiency of four key warehouse complexes.
