The Ebola Workshop in Dakar, held over 3 days in June 2015, brought together experienced Ebola field people and HQ staff from diverse specialties and all MSF sections to reflect on lessons learned so far and make recommendations in the areas of outreach response, patient care, human resources and strategy. Participants placed a high value on intersectional approaches within MSF, and on strong engagement with key external organizations in preparing flexible, adapted, more effective responses to future outbreaks of Ebola or other mass epidemics.
