MSF’s response to the largest ever Ebola outbreak, March 2014 to March 2015
On 22 March 2014, an Ebola epidemic was officially declared in Guinea. Over the course of the next year, the virus would infect more than 25,000 people in nine countries and claim more than 10,000 lives, dwarfing all previous Ebola outbreaks. For comparison, the biggest previous outbreak had a total of 425 cases.
The Ebola One-Year Accountability report describes MSF’s key activities and operational choices during the first year of the crisis, from March 2014 to March 2015. The report also provides an overview of MSF’s funding and expenditure over this period.
