Ebola: WHO Guidelines for Burial Protocols for the Burial Management Team

WiRed International, (2015)

Burial Management Teams have a difficult job resolving two critical issues relevant to their tasks. First, they must safeguard and ensure infection control and prevention for team members, family members and members of the community. Second, they must remain sensitive to the cultural and religious practices of families and others affected by Ebola deaths. This module, based solidly on WHO guidelines, provides burial management teams with practices appropriate to ensure infection control and to remain sensitive to religious and cultural burial practices.

Ebola: Infection Prevention and Control for Health Care Workers in Community and Health Care Settings

WiRed International, (2015)

Ebola infections among health care providers can have devastating effects on individuals, on health care systems and on the communities they serve. This module discusses WHO and CDC infection prevention and control measures that health care facilities should follow to prepare for and to contain an infectious disease outbreak. The module covers infection prevention and control (IPC) in a community and health care setting and looks at IPC in general patient care and in the care of suspected or confirmed cases of Ebola. The module also reviews environment cleaning and the management of linen and waste. Finally the module reviews non-patient care activities, such as IPC in burial procedures, and offers a comprehensive final quiz to help users confirm their understanding of the material.

Ebola: A Poem for the Living - Video

Chocolate Moose Media; United Methodist Communications, (2014)

This video animation was created for use in West Africa to help dispel myths about how Ebola is spread, and to prevent infection and further spreading of the disease. The story is based around a teenage boy on a hospital cot in Liberia, who speaks to his parents, brother and sister warning them about the disease and telling them how it can be prevented. The story highlights the need for isolation and shows the heartache of the family as they are unable to comfort, touch, or care for the boy who is very ill. His words are words of comfort to those who are separated from their loved ones as they are encouraged to take care of themselves and keep away from those who are ill. The video was created by Chocolate Moose Media, an organisation specialising in the use of film and animation for behaviour change, and mobile-health-education innovator iHeed, in collaboration with United Methodist Communications, who provided partial funding. The video, which uses only young voices, is being made available in eight versions: Nigerian English and Pidgin, South African English, French (for Ivory Coast and Guinea), Sierra Leone English, and Liberian English and Krio. It can be downloaded in high definition, low definition, and for use on mobile platforms.

Mobilising informal health workers for the Ebola response: potential and programme considerations

Annie Wilkinson, Almudena Marí Sáez, Jonah Lipton, Fred Martineau and Clare Chandler, Eds.: IDS, US University of Sussex, University of Exeter, London School of Higiene and Tropical Medicine , (2014)

Informal health workers are important care providers in the region and continue to be so during the current Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) outbreak. Many are well respected and trusted members of the community who can mobilise large numbers of people for a particular activity and lend legitimacy to a particular programme.
