This guidance package compiles current facts and key messages about the Ebola outbreak in Liberia to inform activities designed to raise awareness, mobilize communities, and promote safe behaviors to stop the spread of Ebola in Liberia.
The purpose of this guidance package is to provide government agencies, response committees and teams, media outlets, partners, and community leaders with accurate and consistent information to use for when communicating about Ebola in Liberia. All are encouraged to share this document widely as a guide for all communicating about Ebola.
The messages should be adapted to audiences and into Liberia’s local languages and vernaculars as they are shared through local community networks and organizations. Monitoring of audience response for effectiveness and needed refinement is encouraged.
USAID asked NetHope to provide an overview of the state of the information and communications technology (ICT) capabilities in Liberia in three key areas: (a) network and Infrastructure, (b) software and platforms, and (c) digital payments to be used as enabling tools to assist in containing Ebola.
This report was created as part of a two-week rapid assessment. It includes information from first-hand reports from multiple response organizations, discussions with USAID Mission staff in Liberia and implementing partners, and desk research. It is meant to provide a snapshot of the current on-the-ground situation in Liberia and is a first step toward a longer, more exhaustive assessment necessary to gather empirical data.
