Find all the latest information about the Ebola outbreak and the response of the Government, UNICEF and their partners to control the outbreak.

Highlights

3,875 households were visited through C4D door-to-door sessions.

1,340 persons affected by the EVD received psychosocial support in the Ebola Treatment Centers.

A malaria prevention plan was developed to address an increase in malaria cases, observed through the many fever-related cases in the Ebola-affected health zones. The strategy includes the distribution of 275,000 insecticide treatment mosquito nets, locally adapted radio messagesonmalaria prevention, and training of frontline health workers on malaria prevention and treatment. It is expected that an effective response to the increase in malaria will bring about a drop in Ebola alerts and visits to health facilities and ETUs.
