Court résumé Communities are often poorly involved in the planning and implementation of interventions, yet their commitment is fundamental to control outbreaks in all the phases.African countries are responding to the COVID-19 pandemic with measures such as restrictions of movement of people, home confinements and states of emergency such as total or partial lockdowns. But structural challenges and vulnerabilities of health systems and the well-being of people challenge the acceptance and compliance with this package of measures. Lessons learnt from responding to Ebola outbreaks in Africa (2014–2016 and 2018–2020) can strengthen community engagement to enhance the community ownership of the COVID-19 pandemic response.We present 10 lessons learnt from responding to Ebola that African countries should quickly adapt in their response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
