  • Due to the fact that the desease can affect everybody, it is very important to mobilise personnal ressources to sensitise the population about the epidemy. This is because may be in some countries especially in Africa, people ignore the desease. Or they don’t know exactelly how the desease occures and how to do when someone is facing the…[Read more]

  • un grand bravo pour cette information et surtout cette initiative qui nous permet de mieux comprendre les stratégies mises sur pied localement au Liberia .Nous pensons que les structures de soins devrons être bâties a quelques deux à trois kilomètres des habitations pour éviter autres contacts avec les curieux ,les familles et les passa…[Read more]

    • (Translation of above)
      a big applause for this information and especially this initiative which allows us to better understand the strategies set up locally in Liberia.

    • merci pour ce feedback ; Pour les pays en detresse ,Nous suggerons que ,en plus de continuer la sensibilisation à travers les media et les journaux et autres moyens de communication, nous devrons penser à interpeller les leaders de chaque regroupement communautaire pour la continuité des informations concernant cette maladie.Surtout nous de…[Read more]

  • Keep up the awareness and straight talk about it. The media should be very informed of the facts to educate the world. Forewarned is forearmed.

  • community sensitization through the media and other forums is necessary. Increased awareness levels can assist the community to prevent the spread of EVD and to seek help early.

  • je suis pret à prposer cette methode pour la sensibilisation au niveau communautaire

  • Hier soir j’ai regardé une emision de MSF en Guinée sur l’ébola ou une zone à été présenté. Selon cette émission, plus de 75% des personnes ont été guéries de EBOLA parce que toute la population a pris conscience du danger, à accepter de changer les comportements. Je pense que les campagnes doivent se focaliser plus les messages de sensibilisati…[Read more]

    • (Translation of above comment): Last night I watched a show made by Doctors Without Borders in Guinea on Ebola, which focused on a specific zone. According to this program, more than 75 % of the people have been cured of Ebola because the whole population is aware of the danger and has accepted the importance of changing behavior. I think…[Read more]

    • Avant de commencer, j’apporte un message de réconfort à tous ceux qui ont perdu un proche parent ou amis a cause de cette maladie virulente qu’est Ebola.
      Moi je pense que les gouvernements doivent descendre dans les communautés ou résident les populations vulnérables afin de s’enquérir des vrais dangers d’Ebola et autres maladies transmissible…[Read more]

      • (Translation of above comment): Before starting, I would like to send words of comfort to those who have lost family or friends due to Ebola.
        I think that governments should go to communities where residents are vulnerable and look into the true dangers of Ebola and other illnesses. Community members should be trained so that they can take charge…[Read more]

  • It is very important again to run a parallel program that focus on the major transmission routes and hosts of the disease while on the other hand trainings for preventions are diversifying to the grass root point of the communities. Transmission and hosts studies help minimising the recurring of the disease on the long run while the trainings…[Read more]

  • Training, Training and more Training for the ordinary person is needed. I think every willing person should be trained to identify any symptom associated with Ebola.
    Right now Health Officials in some if not all Caribbean Islands are having some training sessions on how to deal with Ebola victims and that is very good

    • Permettez-moi d’ajouter que les médias doivent diffuser les messages pour informer, former les gens sans les paniquer. Sinon la psychose va s’installer et bonjour les dégâts ! Il faudrait, par ailleurs, s’assurer de la bonne gestion des ressources disponibles pour une réponse efficace et efficiente. En effet, l’expérience a montré que certains…[Read more]
