This study aimed to assess differences in community perceptions about, and in response to, Ebola in three counties: Lofa, Bong and Monteserrado.
The assessment sought to obtain answers to the following research questions:
- What are the attitudes, community norms and practices that are related to Ebola?
- How do these attitudes, norms and practices vary within and across study counties?
- How have these attitudes, norms and practices changed over time?
- What factors were responsible for changes in attitudes, norms and practices over time?
- Which groups of people in the community continue to be most affected by Ebola and what are the reasons for their higher vulnerability?
- What are community perspectives on community readiness, collective efficacy and community resources to take appropriate actions related to Ebola prevention, care and treatment (including safe disposal of corpses)?
- How does the community relate to individuals who have recovered from Ebola and their families?
