    Definitions used in this document -- Early recognition and reporting of suspected Ebola virus exposures -- Recommendations for evaluating exposure risk to determine appropriate public health actions.

    The world is facing the biggest and most complex Ebola virus disease (EVD) outbreak in history. On August 8, 2014, the EVD outbreak in West Africa was declared by the World Health Organization (WHO) to be a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC) because it was determined to be an ‘extraordinary event’ with public health risks to other States. The possible consequences of further international spread are particularly serious considering the following factors:

    1. the virulence of the virus,

    2. the intensive community and health facility transmission patterns, and

    3. the strained health systems in the currently affected and most at-risk countries
