This dataset contains shapefiles for Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone from the OpenStreetMap (OSM) project. Each country has its individual file. The dataset counts with contributions of hundreds of users. This dataset is updated daily.
The original dataset can be downloaded from the OSM West Africa Ebola response wiki.

We have provided the 3 word addresses of each health centre within the West African Region.
what3words is a simple, real-time, location referencing system which solves many of the key logistical issues facing aid and humanitarian organisations, for whom street addresses, GPS co-ordinates, and other systems don't exist or are problematic.
Using words means non-technical people can find any location more accurately and most importantly, communicate it more quickly, more easily and with less ambiguity than any other system.

This data is made available from the WHO - Global Health Observatory. Data on new probable and confirmed cases by epi week and district. There is a file for each country Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea.
All the data from the countries can be found at:
There are 2 values for each district. One is from the Ministry of Health SitRep. The other is from the patient database maintained in country. There is latency in getting the patient database is updated therefore the numbers are lower in the latest weeks.

LBR County : polygon dataset that shows all 15 districts (admin level 1) for LIberia, each identified by an unique P-code. The dataset was provided by UNMIL in 2011 and a new pcode structure was created using the ISO-3 System. OCHA pcodes have been also added.
LBR_Disctrict.zip: polygon dataset that shows all 136 districts (admin level 2) for LIberia, each identified by an unique P-code. The dataset was provided by UNMIL in 2011 and a new pcode structure was created using the ISO-3 System. OCHA pcodes have been also added.
From February to October 2016, the American Red Cross and its local Red Cross partners completed an effort to extensively map areas within a 15-kilometer distance of the shared borders between Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone.
The goal of this work was to create an open and comprehensive dataset of communities for West Africa and to ensure that decision makers, humanitarian workers, and community stakeholders are better aware of water, sanitation, health, and community resources before and during the next crisis.
To complete this mapping, the American Red Cross launched a mapping center in Guéckédou, Guinea, and used it as both a base of operations and a community engagement facility. Over 100 volunteers helped to complete a rapid assessment of the region, visiting over 7,000 communities by motorbike to complete a vulnerability survey with the village leader. Next, over 100 communities were selected for a round of detailed mapping, focusing on collecting the location and information about every water point, health facility and other community resource in the area. In addition, we led technical skills trainings and mapping events both in Guéckédou and across the region.

EbolaGeonode was a partnership platform for sharing geospatial data, analysis and maps related to the Ebola emergency response. The platform was intended to minimize the time that GIS analysts spend locating up-to-date data. Users were able to make maps on the fly, view metadata, and access the reports behind GIS layers. Curators worked to ensure that the layers were recent, clean, useful, and legally and technically open.
In 2014, RIWI Corp. launched an online survey in Nigeria, Liberia, and Sierra Leone capturing public perceptions data from over 4,000 respondents on the status of Ebola in those countries. Respondents were asked a series of questions related to their confidence in government and aid agencies to manage the Ebola outbreak, as well as their own behavioral response to the infection. The data was collected using RIWI's patented Random Domain Intercept Technology™ (RDIT).
