The Ebola crisis has affected some of the most vulnerable countries of the world, and frontline health workers are struggling to keep pace with the outbreak. Health workers need clear, simple and reliable information on how to protect themselves, detect the disease, and respond.
More than 15 international health organizations, led bymPowering Frontline Health WorkersandIntraHealth International, are coming together to share information related to this response through webinar discussions and via an online Ebola Resource Center.
Please join the conversation in the webinars.
The webinar series, Training Health Workers for Ebola: Protection, Detection, and Response, will run on October 21, 23, 28, and 30. The webinars are open to all and we welcome participation from as diverse an audience as possible, including Ministries of Health, health workers, community leaders, program implementers (in-country and international), policy makers, and others.

The presentations and discussions in the webinars will cover the following issues:
- ·How to leverage currently available resources to train, support, and communicate with frontline health workers and others involved in the direct Ebola response through mobile technology;
- ·Ways to connect implementers to resources, collaborators, & sources of information;
- ·Improving opportunities to enable implementers and programmers to share efforts, collaborate, and avoid duplication.
An online Ebola Resource Centeris being developed for participants to share messages, training content, guidance documents, and other information (launch on 21st October). In addition, a linked 4-week facilitated online discussionwill take place in the Health Information for All Forum leading up to, during and after the webinars.
