The Ebola outbreak in West Africa differed from others in its unprecedented size and the high proportion of human-to-human transmission occurring in the community. This report presents an analysis of the impact of Community Care Centres (CCCs) on communities in Sierra Leone. Much has been written about the leadership and coordination of the response – or the lack of it. The emphasis of this evaluation is on the views on the development, implementation and relevance of the CCCs from the perspective of the communities next to and near where they were located. The key questions explored are divided into two categories: (1) Community engagement with the development and management of the CCC; and (2) Post- Ebola uses of the CCC.
