This project was funded with UK aid from the UK government..

Health systems, schools, and communities are strengthened to promote Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) prevention and control. All EVD or related infections are expected to be properly identified, referred and traced for appropriate follow up management. Health personnel, religious leaders, school staff, women groups and communities have adequate level of knowledge on EVD and skills on EVD prevention and control. EVD affected households and schools are equipped with hygiene and hand-washing kits and are properly managing the cases. The intervention as a whole will contribute to decreasing of Ebola incidence in the districts at risk and in Mali as a whole.
