Ebola SMS Messages for health workers in Krio. These messages are part of a course that was developed by IntraHealth to get information quickly to health workers in Ebola-affected and at-risk countries. The messages were developed based on the US CDC’s Ebola Guidelines for health workers.
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.
