MSF: Filovirus Haemorrhagic Fever Guideline

The Filovirus Haemorrhagic Fever (FHF) Guideline gives a short explanation and a comprehensive overview of all intervention strategy components (including planning for patient isolation in a health facility, medication required during caring for a patient, contract tracing, etc.) needed during a Médecins sans Frontières (MSF) intervention in Marburg and Ebola viral haemorrhagic fever outbreaks. It is a practical summary of the MSF Ebola & Marburg Outbreak Control Guidance Manual, 2007 version 2.0, with the ‘lessons learned’ added from the Ebola outbreaks in 2007 in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Uganda. It is useful as preparation for MSF expatriates and national staff going to work in an intervention, while the Guidance Manual will remain the exclusive ‘Guidance’ to provide all detailed information needed to implement and continue the intervention strategies and activities.  ( Ebola Toolbox)
