The Ebola epidemic that struck West Africa three years ago impacted every section of society, but it was often women who were most affected by the tensions and conflict that the epidemic caused.

Ebola destroyed relationships between and within communities, and a lack of understanding about the disease created an atmosphere of fear and suspicion. As the primary care-givers and traders, women were often the most exposed to the disease, and therefore the stigma that surrounded it.
