From January-April 2015, I helped lead a project between Médecins Sans Frontières Canada and the Munk School of Global Affairs at the University of Toronto to examine the long-term impacts of the 2014 Ebola virus disease outbreak in West Africa on the affected countries’ health systems. Working with other team members from MSF-Canada, we supervised a team of 6 graduate students from the University of Toronto who conducted a desk review inclusive of document and data reviews and interviews with practitioners in the field. The final report focuses on maternal, newborn and child health and access to surgical care in the affected countries, and provides the foundation for further operational research and program development in these areas.
