In 2014, ACF initiated an innovative approach for social mobilization activites that mobilizes the communities for impoving control of the risks of transmission of Ebola at the community level. The CLEME program was aimed at triggering the behavioral change needed by the communities to strengthen community resilience to the outbreak and prevent further resurgence by ensuring real and sustainable improvements. The CLEME approach implemented by ACF in the districts of Kambia and Moyamba revealed its efficiency in limiting and controlling the spread of the disease at the community level. The implementation of CLEME demonstrated that for a good and effective behavoiral change there needs to be continuous analysis of the communities' barriers, the different needs of different genders needs to be considered, regular update, feedback and adaptation, program integration, and resilience are all recommendations as a result of the impementation.
