Congratulations! Today is a milestone for the people of Guinea, who’ve been through so much yet have remained courageous
in the face of a deadly disease.
We’re thrilled to celebrate with you, as Guinea is declared free of Ebola transmission.
Your hard work, commitment and dedication have succeeded. The people of Guinea have been through so much, and they have remained brave and strong. I’d like to recognize and remember all who have succumbed to this disease as well as recognize those who have survived it.
Many of you have helped identify new cases, treat patients, trace contacts and stop the spread of disease. This was a difficult achievement, especially considering the large geographic area. But the vigilance and hard work of responders, government and the people of Guinea controlled the outbreak.
Guinea has also been at the forefront of innovations that will save many lives. You’ve supported the ring vaccination trial and rapid diagnostic testing, which has allowed the country to quickly identify Ebola cases.

While this is a time to celebrate, it’s also important not to let down our guard. It’s important that we learn from this response, and use Guinea’s success to build an even stronger public health system and be ready for any possible future cases of Ebola, and prevent and control other diseases as well. This includes strengthening vaccination programs, improving malaria prevention and control, and responding rapidly and effectively to any vaccine derived polio cases The very first time Dr. Sakoba and I met, we agreed, and today I reiterate: “Hasta la victoria siempre!”
