Animated Film for Health Worker Use in Guinea to Support Ebola Contact-Tracing

Medical Aid Films just released a short new animated film on Ebola in collaboration with the Earth Institute at Columbia University. The film is targeted to help educate communities in Guinea about “contact tracing,” vital work being done by health workers to find everyone who has been in direct contact with a sick Ebola patient in order to help stop spread of the disease.

Quoted from their announcement:

Our animation follows the story of a contact tracer, Mariam, as she goes about her work – visiting those who have come into contact with a sick Ebola patient, finding those who are showing symptoms, and arranging appropriate care for those who need it. The film will be used by the Government of Guinea and UNFPA in Guinea; and it is freely available in English and French for anyone to download and use, in both standard and mobile formats.
