The United Nations Children’s Fund’s Communication for Development section is sharing information on how to prevent the spread of the Ebola virus.
UNICEF has been working closely on this issue with the World Health Organization and other partners, communities, governments, and UN agencies. The resources will be continually updated to enable prompt responses to this humanitarian crisis.
The online collection of materials is designed to assist individuals and organizations in countries dealing with an Ebola outbreak to respond with accurate information in a timely fashion.
Materials include fact sheets emphasizing key messages, brochures, slide presentations, and other visual and audio resources. There are also training materials such as guidelines for community volunteers.
Other tools available through the webpage include Behaviour Change Communication in Emergencies: A Toolkit; Essentials for Excellence ─ Research, Monitoring and Evaluating Strategic Communication; and the UNICEF Cholera Toolkit.
