EBOLA Impact Revealed

In March of 2014 the EVD outbreak hit Liberia, taking with it many lives in its wake. As a move to ensure that further programming is rooted in evidence, this study was conducted to shed light on the gender dimensions of the EVD outbreak. Many thanks to UN Women, Oxfam,Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection and the WASH Consortium for seeing it prudent to undertake this assessment. This document epitomizes their quest to support evidence-based practice in policy formulation and effective program design especially during the Ebola recovery phase; and it stands as a testament of their strategic focus on gender equality and women’s empowerment. The assessment would not have been possible without the tireless contributions of a broad team of people. We acknowledge all the men and women who took time off to participate in the assessment. We also thank all the local government officials, community and traditional leaders who cooperated with, and supported the teams across the country. We owe an enormous depth of gratitude to the team of enumerators, supervisors, monitors and transcribers whose unique professional contributions enhanced the quality of data gathered by the assessment
