EVD Preparedness Response in Southwestern Uganda
Published : December 2, 2022
The Ebola viral disease (EVD) outbreaks in eastern DRC in February and October 2021 put Uganda, particularly southwestern Uganda, at high risk of importation of the virus due to cross-border activities between the two countries. The outbreaks also came at a time when the global COVID-19 pandemic placed focus on the need to strengthen global health security activities.
This technical brief outlines USAID MTaPS Program’s support to Uganda’s Ministry of Health, local implementing partners, and the district health teams in southwestern Uganda to strengthen local capacity in EVD preparedness. At the national level, a review of the national EVD preparedness work plan provided guidance and support to the regional and district activities.Download
