Objective: To describe the tasks carried out in Sierra Leone during the Ebola outbreak. Methods: This is a documentary review based on the regulations developed and the technical documents published by the Sierra Leone Ministry of Health. Conclusions: Health systems need collaborative work, especially in cases of epidemics or pandemics. The information presented shows what could be achieved in the Ebola epidemic for detecting emerging foci, as well as for guaranteeing communication among professionals, and for saving lives.
