It is 10 months since the World Health Organisation (WHO) declared that the two-year Ebola outbreak in west Africa was at an end; but the aftermath of the two-year health crisis will take many years to resolve. The effects of the Ebola crisis are wide ranging; and include damage to infrastructure, barren farmland leading to food insecurity, significant school drop-out and teenage pregnancy – on top of the 11,000 lives lost in the outbreak. Now, the Anglican churches in the region have developed a five-year mission plan to help the affected countries recover.
