This research paper analysed the performance of the Ebola alert management system, established in response to the Ebola outbreak in DRC in August 2018. EVD alerts reported in South Sudan in 2018-19 were anlaysed using quantitative and qualitative data.

Strengths identified included the existence of a dedicated national alert hotline, case definition for alerts and rapid response teams. Weaknesses included the occasional inability to access the alert toll-free hotline and lack of transport for deployment of the rapid response teams which often constrain quick response.
