ePROTECT is an occupational health and safety briefing that covers the basic information you need to protect yourself when deploying to countries with Ebola virus disease. Those of you who will carry out specialized tasks, such as working in direct contact with sick people, will need more advanced-level training and coaching.
Ebola is a serious disease. Pre-deployment training and follow-up support is required to help personnel working in affected countries work safely and effectively. The ePROTECT course is a basic self-learning online introduction for personnel being deployed to work on the Ebola response. You can access the course from a computer or a tablet.

The GO training package was developed by the World Health Organization for use by staff, consultants and partners who are part of the emergency response, so that they can work safely as part of the teams working to bring the outbreak under control.
Module 1: Pre-deployment training
Module 2: Introduction to Ebola
Module 3: Global Ebola response
Module 4: Pillars of the global Ebola response
Module 5: Working with WHO
The flip book is for pre-deployment trainings for Ebola response, and is based on frequently asked questions about Ebola virus disease (EVD):
What is Ebola virus disease?
How do people become infected with EVD?
Why WHO is focusing on safe and dignified burials of people who have died from Ebola?
Who is most at risk?
What are the symptoms of Ebola infection?
What treatment is available for Ebola?
This is a pre-deployment training, tailored specially to the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, offered to WHO personnel, consultants, and key partners. The material covered in modules 1-4 is applicable and useful to frontline response workers, national and international. Only Module 5, which focuses on operational aspects - the code of conduct for international civil servants and human resources arrangements for WHO deployees, are specifically geared to all internationally recruited personnel and to WHO deployees respectively
All personnel deployed by the World Health Organization (WHO) to any type of public health or humanitarian emergency need to have basic knowledge and skills to perform effectively and safely. That is why it is essential to be trained prior to deployment. GO training is a comprehensive package of modular pre-deployment training materials for WHO staff, consultants and partners deployed for the Ebola outbreak response in West Africa. Each module is accompanied with a video lecture for self-learning purposes
