The BMJ has made all of its articles referring to the Ebola outbreak free to access.
The content includes latest guidance for healthcare workers, which 'will continue to update healthcare workers, outside of west Africa, with the latest guidance from the UK's Health Protection Agency and the US Center for Disease Control'
Free information about the Ebola virus and how best to treat it, is available from BMJ Best Practice [https://bestpractice.bmj.com/topics/en-gb/1210], the clinical support tool from BMJ, for clinicians working on the frontline in affected rural and urban regions of DR Congo. The information has been reviewed and aligned with WHO guidance.

This is an initiative in which it is hoped the development community can start to ask itself deep and serious questions about how the current development model has contributed to shaping the magnitude of today’s crisis – and, importantly, point to what needs to change to realise a more resilient global future.
Ebola Deeply is an online web portal and news site designed to provide accurate and timely information about the Ebola health crisis, with an emphasis on providing context and countering misinformation. Launched in October 2014, this digital media project involves a team of freelance journalists and technologists who feature a mix of original articles, op-eds, and content from the Associated Press and other news organisations. A key feature of the site is the Ebola Files section, a collection of text and interactive materials covering basic information, the history of the Ebola virus, scientific perspectives, and stories about survivors. There is also an interactive map of recent cases and death rates, a timeline of events, and videos
WiderNet@UNC and the WiderNet Project have established the Ebola Emergency Response Library initiative to create a pocket library for people, especially local health care workers in Liberia, Guinea, and Sierra Leone, responding to the Ebola crisis in Africa.
They are collecting high-quality digital resources for everyone from physicians and researchers to families, teachers, media outlets, social workers, and school children.
While this collection is available on the World Wide Web for those who have Internet access, the resources can be distributed on micro chips for use in smartphones, tablets, and laptops in places that lack internet access. The chips can be freely copied so that the information spreads faster than the disease.
