Ebola and Marburg virus disease epidemics: preparedness, alert, control, and evaluation

Author: World Health Organization

This guidance describes preparedness, prevention, and control measures that have been implemented successfully during previous epidemics. These measures must be implemented during the following four phases: (1) Pre-epidemic preparedness (2) Alert (identify, investigate, evaluate risks) (3) Outbreak response and containment operations (4) Post-epidemic evaluation. The main target audience of this document are district-level health-care workers (doctors, nurses, and paramedics), as well as intermediate- and central-level health-care workers responsible for epidemic control, and International Health Regulations (IHR) National Focal Points (NFPs).
