 The donation will assist the Ministry of Health to immediately implement immediately many of the activities in the Ministry’s Ebola Response Plan. These activities will focus on high priority needs such as community-based education and surveillance, communication, and infection prevention and control for health workers.

“This assistance will help the Ministry of Health to ensure any future cases of Ebola are identified, treated, and rapidly controlled,” USAID Mission Director Susan Fine said. “It will help strengthen the systems that successfully prevented the spread of the disease in August, improve the public’s understanding of the disease, and protect health care workers.”
