GIS Support for the MSF Ebola Reponse in Guinea 2014

In March 2014, MSF-Switzerland deployed a dedicated Geographic Information Systems (GIS) officer to Guinea in response to the Ebola outbreak in the south of the country. In support of the epidemiological team, the GIS officer was charged with producing general overview maps, as well as topical maps that supported different aspects of the operation. This case study aims to elaborate whether the GIS officer’s mission to Guinea has succeeded in supporting the emergency response and furthering the strategic goals defined in the Strategic Paper “Development of the GIS in MSF-CH”.
