Dealing with Ebola's double blow

Before the 2014-2015 Ebola outbreak ravaged West Africa, little was known about the possible medical and psychological consequences of beating the deadly virus because only a small number of people had ever survived the disease. But the unprecedented scale of the last epidemic revealed a profound and unfulfilled, need for medical and psychological follow-up care for survivors. More than 28,700 people contracted the virus and today there are more than 10,000 Ebola survivors in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia. To respond to the needs, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) set up specialised survivor clinics in the three countries between January until September 2016.
