The security sector’s role in responding to health crises - Lessons from the 2014–2015 Ebola epidemic and recommendations for the Mano River Union and its Member States

Source(s):  Geneva Centre for the Democratic Control of Armed Forces (DCAF)

With funding from the Swiss Federal Department of Defence, Civil Protection and Sport (DDPS), on 24–25 August 2016 the Geneva Centre for the Democratic Control of Armed Forces (DCAF) and the Global Health Centre (GHC) at the Graduate Institute in Geneva, in collaboration with the JS & Associates Centre for Governance and Security Policy (CGSP) in Sierra Leone, jointly organized a two-day roundtable-style workshop entitled “The Security Sector and Global Health Crises: Lessons from the 2014 Ebola Epidemic in West Africa” at the Bintumani Conference Hall in Freetown, Sierra Leone.

This report is informed by the workshop’s main discussions, outcomes and recommendations, which are expected to facilitate better preparedness to mitigate future epidemics. This will be achieved through collaborative and coordinated efforts between health and security sector communities, and directed at local, national and regional actors as well as the international donor community engaged in West Africa.
