One of the most important things we learned from the 2014-2016 Ebola outbreak in West Africa was the crucial role of communities. In DRC, doctors, health workers, religious leaders, journalists and local radio stations are all playing a part to raise awareness on recognizing early signs and symptoms, and early treatment options.
Since the start of the outbreak, UNICEF and partners have reached more than 300,000 people with lifesaving information about how to avoid contracting the deadly virus.
