In light of escalating Ebola Virus Disease crisis in Liberia, this Consolidated Plan builds on the original Joint UN Support Plan launched by the UN system in Liberia on the 14th of August in Liberia.
This poster lists and illustrates five ways to keep Ebola from spreading:
- Avoid physical contact with people showing symptoms of the disease
- Wash hands regularly with soap and clean water
- Do not shake hands with people showing symptoms of the disease
- Keep away from bats, monkeys, baboons, and dead animals
- Avoid eating bush meat, and cook all food very well
The poster has information about how the virus is transmitted from animals to humans. The audience is Liberian communities where introduction of the virus from bushmeat is a primary danger. The poster is clear, bright, and understandable.
This pamphlet explains what Ebola is, how it is spread, its signs and symptoms, and how it can be prevented. It directs information to community members as well as to health workers.
