Protecting Myself, Protecting the Nation: Ebola Awareness and Risk Mitigation for Police Officers in Sierra Leone

Report
GOAL

Sierra Leone has been in the midst of a major public health emergency since May 2014 as a result of the 2014 Ebola crisis. The outbreak is the largest in history, and the first in West Africa.

Since the President declared a State of Emergency on July 30th, Police Officers have been deployed to quarantine houses, and to secure checkpoints, hospitals and clinic facilities. They have done so with little or no training on the nature of the outbreak, how to minimize their personal risk of infection, or how to perform their duties in these highly unusual circumstances.
