Ebola Virus Disease: Personal Protective Equipment UNICEF Specifications

UNICEF provides a detailed update and list of Ebola virus disease personal protective equipment technical specifications for use in high- and low-risk settings.

The equipment extends biological protection barriers to prevent percutaneous and mucocutaneous exposure.

It includes barriers for full body protection, as well as the head, nose, mouth, eyes, hands and feet. In selecting the right PPE specifications for frontline workers, the degree of contact with infectious material, and the potential for infected fluid penetration should be considered.
