Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) is a deadly illness with a fatality rate around 50%, which can spike to 90% during outbreaks. First identified in 1976 near the Ebola River in the Democratic Republic of Congo, EVD has caused sporadic but devastating outbreaks. The recent epidemic in West Africa is the most significant yet, affecting Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Liberia the most due to their weak healthcare systems. This situation has highlighted the need for better global health security and international cooperation to manage such diseases. Our paper focuses on these three countries to analyze the outbreak and response strategies, aiming to offer insights into improving healthcare systems and responses to EVD and similar diseases worldwide. By doing so, we hope to influence future policies and interventions for better managing infectious disease outbreaks.
