The objective of this exercise is to reflect on the recent OCBA Ebola intervention in Province Equateur, DRC, in order to understand the actual in-house capacities in this field. This reflection exercise aims further to serve as the trigger for a broader exercise where, once the main findings and
conclusions are shared and acknowledged by key OCBA stakeholders with regard to VHF response, OCBA ambitions on the domain of Ebola response will be discussed again. Finally, the outcome of that broader exercise could be, considering the result of this capitalization as the baseline situation, the design and implementation of an action plan that should contribute to fulfil those ambitions. This capitalization exercise intended to explore strengths and weaknesses of OCBA’s response; what seems to have worked well and what didn’t regarding the resources deployed; how adequate were the strategies defined and their implementation for the different pillars and aspects of the response.

MSF-OCG has been present in Magaria, Niger since 2005. MSF is confronted with yearly peaks of severe acute malnutrition and malaria, which mainly affect children under five-years-old.

This includes establishing a long-term strategy, the simplification of protocols, exploring innovative ways to treat malnutrition
and malaria, and perhaps using this as an opportunity to revitalise the general interest in malnutrition
