Ebola outbreak in West Africa: staff care resources
As the recent Ebola outbreak in West Africa grows and the number of deaths is increasing, it is critical to keep both communities, and those who are there to help them, safe. What should aid organisations be thinking about to support their staff in affected areas?
People In Aid has a range of staff care resources available on our online resource centre.
Members have access to the Policy Bank, which holds past policies on staff care and preventing HIV and other infectious diseases, as well as evacuation procedures.
