    The World Health Organization (WHO) has developed this emergency guideline in close collaboration with the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) High-Risk Unaffected Countries Team of the International Task Force for the 2014 Ebola Response. The information contained in this document is based on a guidance document entitled, “Contact Tracing During an Outbreak of Ebola Virus Disease,” developed by the Disease Surveillance and Response Programme Area of the Disease Prevention and Control Cluster of the WHO African Region (AFRO).

    This operational document has been prepared to guide the implementation and management of contact tracing in all countries preparing for and managing EVD outbreaks. In addition to discussing potential solutions to common contact tracing challenges, the guide also provides direction regarding the monitoring and evaluation of the contact tracing process. The guide has been prepared based on best practices from extensive field experiences during previous EVD outbreaks as well as the most recent 2014 EVD outbreak in West Africa.
