Communinty workers speak with families about how they can best protect themselves from Ebola virus.

 “There is no specific treatment for Ebola, which is spread by contact with the bodily fluids of infected people or animals. Therefore prevention is one of the best ways to contain the virus. 

Access to timely and accurate life-saving information is hence absolutely crucial. This is where UNICEF is focusing its efforts moving forward,” said UNICEF Representative in Guinea, Dr. Mohamed Ag Ayoy.

UNICEF, working closely with WHO, partners and communities, is sharing information on how to prevent the spread of the virus while also promoting care seeking behaviours for those already affected. Governments, UN agencies and partners are collaborating closely to ensure a prompt response to this humanitarian crisis.
