Mise en place d’un protocole d’évaluation de l’acceptabilité et de la qualité des dispositifs d’isolement temporaire déployés par la Croix-Rouge française au cours de la 10ème épidémie d’Ebola en République Démocratique du Congo

Abstract : Facing a heavy toll in human lives due to the various Ebola virus disease epidemics that have hit the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) since 2014, the country, supported by its partners, has been developing responses, in particular in the field of Infection Prevention and Control (IPC). In 2019/2020, as part of its response to the 10th epidemic, the French Red Cross in collaboration with the Red Cross of Congo developed and deployed innovative measures for temporary isolation in its North Kivu intervention zone. In this report, we have developed an assessment protocol to evaluate acceptability and effectiveness of temporary isolation measures put in place within health organizations. In July 2021, a study will be carried out in the field so as to collect users' impressions, identify obstacles and levers in relation to acceptance by communities and health agents and to determine the effects of implementing temporary isolation measures on health centers attendance levels. The results of this study will help consider and develop a response strategy and plan activities adapted to local background characteristics and its influencing sociocultural factors in order to reinforce community support. Whether it is in relation to the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic or to resurging epidemic-prone diseases such as measles and cholera, actions to reinforce and improve the quality and the effectiveness of prevention and responses to fight Ebola virus diseases will enable to build a solid foundation for the prevention and surveillance of future epidemic-prone infections.
