It seems to be over: The Ebola epidemic, which began in March 2014 and claimed over 11,000 lives, has officially been over since March 2016. The survivors have now set off on the long way back to normalcy. With the aid of physical and psychosocial care, people are trying to process the epidemic's traumatic experiences. A prevention-oriented health care system is being developed for the future. However, not only the epidemic has left scars: The trauma of the decade-long civil war has also scarred the population’s collective consciousness.
