UNICEF is releasing a new Ebola Safety e-Course, developed by DHR/OLDS in collaboration with various specialists.

This course provides key facts about the current Ebola outbreak, promotes safe preventative practices, and offers an overview of the support in place for staff.

The course can be of particular interest to colleagues planning to travel to areas currently affected by the outbreak, and those already working in the region. While it contains some UNICEF/UN specific information, most of the course can apply to other humanitarian actors' staff.
