«I am writing this book in this post-Ebola period for several reasons, the first of which is the duty to bear witness to my compatriots and, secondly, in response to numerous requests from national and international partners. I would like to share with you all my experiences in managing epidemics. I have managed more than thirty-five epidemics in the country, including Ebola, which aroused the emotions of everyone and led to an unfailing mobilization of the Guinean population. As one of the leaders of this response, I feel obliged to write this book, in order to deal with this epidemic, the management and the challenges faced, to draw up an inventory of the solutions provided, the lessons learned and our actions and responses to the various epidemics. I am writing this as a testimony. I am also doing it for the new generation, which has the right to know what really happened in Guinea between 2014 and 2016, so that theycan learn from it in the future.»
