Management and Preparation Plans Of The Greek State In a Possible Ebola Outbreak And Description Of Triage During West Africa Outbreak
Summary:
Εbola virus disease or Ebola hemorrhagic fever is one of the major contemporary challenges in the field of International Health. The outbreak in West Africa in 2014 and the outbreak still in effect since 2018 in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, demonstrates the need for more effective response strategies both by the international community as well as on a national country level.
Greece, following the Ιnternational and European response, has drawn up an action plan for the management of Ebola and has taken a series of actions to manage a potential epidemic. International groups of specialist scientists have been recruited and special care centers, the Ebola Treatment Units/Ebola Care Units (ETUs/ECUs), have been set up with the primary aim of the effective triage of potential cases which plays an important role in the early treatment and survival of patients as well as of preventing the transmission of the disease.
The current master thesis is studying the reinforcement of the measures and action plans both in Greece and the endemic countries as well as the triage procedures and how they can be improved in order to prevent a new outbreak.
