Abstract

Health workers are a group at high risk of transmission of Ebola virus outbreak. Health workers are often infected with Ebola virus during the diagnosis, isolation or service process on the patients suspected of Ebola virus. On December 6th, 2018, Banda Aceh’s class III port health office in the Working Area of Ulee Lheue Port carried out an evacuation plan against the Maersk Mutotsu crews with Panama-flagged sailing from Mozambique to Singapore. From the results of the port doctor's examination, the patients were suspected of the Ebola virus. This incident shows that the preparedness of the Banda Aceh’s Class III Port Health Office in dealing with Ebola virus disease is still very low. The populations in this study were Class III Port Health Office workers in the Work Area of Ulee Lheue Port and government institutions as disaster management agencies (cross-sectoral). Based on the results of the research on the preparedness of Banda Aceh’s class III port health office in the Working Area of Ulee Lheue Port in dealing with Ebola virus disease, it can be concluded that the Banda Aceh’s class III port health office in the Working Area of Ulee Lheue Port has not yet had trained human resources for the preparedness to deal with Ebola virus disease. The Class III of Banda Aceh’s port health office has not yet had a Quick Response Team (TGC), they were not trained to handle Ebola cases and has never stimulated the Ebola case.
