This guide is aimed at community-level actors conducting Ebola preparedness activities. It covers key elements of general rumor management as well as specific rumors and possible responses to those rumors and includes a set of practical tools at the end.
This Weekly Bulletin focuses on public health emergencies occurring in the WHO African Region. The WHO Health Emergencies Programme is currently monitoring 129 events in the region. Weekly articles cover a range of diseases and currently include, amongst others: COVID-19 across the WHO African region and Ebola virus disease in Guinea.
For each of these events, a brief description, followed by public health measures implemented and an interpretation of the situation is provided.
A table is provided at the end of the bulletin with information on all new and ongoing public health events currently being monitored in the region, as well as recent events that have been controlled and closed. A free subscription to the bulletin is available.
This Guide was developed by the Yale Institute of Global Health and the UNICEF Demand for Immunization team. It is intended for public health professionals, communicators, advocates and anyone else who wishes to create pro-vaccine content to motivate people to vaccinate themselves and their entourage.
