We started by creating display images to remove people's fear and misinformation to setting up social network accounts, to web based solutions and Telephone helplines where people could request information and report issues related to Ebola. Our solution was adopted by the Government and we were integrated into the Emergency Operations Center as the official communication and reports portal. During our operations, we detected 2 Ebola cases that could have resulted in secondary outbreaks and also managed multiple rumors till the outbreak was over and Nigeria was declared Ebola free. The same systems we utilized in Nigeria is currently being scaled to the regions of West Africa with active outbreaks
