Liberia Ebola Response

ADC is currently responding to the Ebola outbreak in Liberia through community-based workshops and radio messages in two of Liberia's counties:  Lofa and Maryland. These radio spots and training sessions focus on how Ebola is spread, how to prevent infection, Ebola symptoms and where to go for treatment. The training is organized by the Ministry of Education and funded by UNICEF. The goal is to train all Liberian government teachers to raise awareness among communities. The training centers on preventive measures and also covers how to care for a sick family member if the Ebola Treatment Unit is full. The training demonstrates how people can take care of their relatives, in worse case scenarios, and how to minimize the risk of contamination. ADC is training public school teachers and its Early Childhood Development center staff.
