Motivated by the belief that community engagement is essential at all stages of epidemic preparedness and response, at the height of the Ebola virus disease epidemic in West Africa, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) launched a social and behaviour change communication (SBCC) project designed to halt transmission and stop the disease from spreading to neighbouring countries in the region. This IFRC case study describes the project and some of the lessons learned that emerged from it.
