Research Agenda

An agenda of prioritised research questions has been assembled by the Steering Committee and approved by the National Research Ethics Committees in the countries where data originate. Significant input from health, research and patient communities in affected countries has contributed to the development of the agenda, which is designed to inform the WHO Research & Development Roadmap for Ebola.

The Research Agenda informs priorities for data analyses that contribute to advances in Ebola prevention, treatment and response. Questions are focused on those that can be addressed using data on the Ebola Data Platform in order to maximise the impact of available data.  

It is an iterative document which evolves as research and knowledge progress. To contribute to its development, please send your suggestions on priority research questions to
