A Call to Impact and Solidarity in the Wake of Ebola

The report provides an overview of the Ebola crisis and the international response in the three countries hardest hit by Ebola, and describes a Catholic approach to resiliency. It argues that Catholic health networks — as part of the faith-based health systems comprising up to a third of health care delivery in these West African nations — are uniquely equipped to contribute to the ongoing response and rebuilding effort, and critical to community resiliency.

The report provides an overview of the Ebola crisis and the international response in the three countries hardest hit by Ebola, and describes a Catholic approach to resiliency. It argues that Catholic health networks — as part of the faith-based health systems comprising up to a third of health care delivery in these West African nations — are uniquely equipped to contribute to the ongoing response and rebuilding effort, and critical to community resiliency.

Most importantly, it identifies three key gaps and opportunities for action in alignment with the Holy See’s Ebola response and rebuilding initiative. This report calls for solidarity with this Vatican special initiative to: support Catholic health networks as they rebuild; strengthen psychosocial and pastoral care; and encourage collaboration and partnerships.
