Guinea was ground zero for the 2014 outbreak of Ebola virus, and those infected suffered a mortality rate of 66% – higher than that of the other two West African countries also severely affected: Sierra Leone (32% mortality) and Liberia (45%). Health experts have been concerned that other critical health issues such as malaria, pneumonia, and typhoid, as well as routine care for maternal and child health, might go unattended due to closures of clinics, patients avoiding facilities for fear of contracting Ebola, or patients with Ebola‐like symptoms being turned away. To address this need, in 2015 MEASURE Evaluation conducted a rapid assessment to understand better the effects of Ebola on delivery and utilization of routine reproductive, maternal, newborn, and child health (RMNCH) services, described in this report.
