Abstract:
2.1. Primary objectives The Primary objective of the survey is to:  Estimate mortality in a sample of the population in the urban and rural area of Bo District from the approximate start of the Ebola outbreak in Sierra Leone (mid May 2014) until the day of the survey. 2.2. Secondary objectives  Estimate overall and cause-specific mortality (EVD and non-EVD) in children under the age of 5 years, and the population aged 5 years and older within the study area, with particular attention to the period prior to the MSF Ebola Management Centre (EMC) opening in Bo district (19 September 2014) and the period during which it was receiving cases from the district (last confirmed case exited 26 January 2015);  Estimate overall and cause-specific mortality (EVD and non-EVD) in quarantined and non-quarantined households; and contact-traced and non-contact-traced households;  Describe health seeking behaviour in terms of whether health care was sought, where health care was sought and whether access to health care was possible.
