This paper explores the urban-specific challenges of the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) epidemic in West Africa. It describes how humanitarians communicated and engaged with urban stakeholders in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone. It focuses in particular on how humanitarians navigated urban notions of community, a dense and mobile population, participation in an environment of little trust and other related issues. In doing so, it identifies learning to take forward into future urban public health crises.
