In 2023, Africa CDC ranked and prioritized epidemic-prone diseases of risk for the continent, observing Ebola with the highest potential for disease severity, risk and epidemic potential. Governments across the Ebola belt are rising to prioritize preparedness to prevent the loss of human capital, especially in the health system, prevent intra-community and cross-border spread and protect their economies. This marks an African-led paradigm change in Ebola shifting from response to prevention. African Union Member states and partners at the forefront of Ebola preparedness and response will share their experiences and perspectives of vaccinating at-risk populations pre-emptively and during an outbreak.
