Ebola Research

Real time research applied during the Ebola crisis

To respond to the Ebola epidemic in West Africa, in August 2014 ELRHA launched a special funding window to support research that would produce robust findings that could contribute to the effectiveness of the outbreak response and help to draw lessons for future outbreaks of Ebola and other communicable diseases.

The following papers are the product of this research.
