Diagnostic lessons in Sudan ebola success:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The World Health Organization is attributing the successful containment and eradication of Sudan's ebola haemorrhagic fever (EHF) outbreak to improved detection methods and response capacity at local levels. The outbreak - the fifth in Sudan in as many years - was declared over on August 7, which was 42 days (twice the disease's incubation period) after the last of only seven fatalities. The success of the Yambio-centred campaign lies in the high disease detection and containment rates. The Sudanese authorities were backed by specialised international assistance in the form of virus-typing and specialised testing performed by the Kenyan Medical Research Institute and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
