Here are some ways you can help in the response to the ongoing Ebola outbreak:
- Donate to non-governmental organizations that are responding to the outbreak.
- Find more information about how to be a medical volunteer for the Ebola outbreak from USAID.
- Partners in Health is recruiting clinicians, nurses, laboratory technicians and logisticians. Short-term volunteers (8 week minimum) and longer-term workers (ideally 12 months) are needed to help staff the Ebola Treatment Units, as well as help support community-based work.
- Get involved with the USAID/White House Office of Science and Technology/CDC/Department of Defense effort to collect ideas about improving care delivery and join their challenge competition to fund and test innovations for personal protective equipment and infection treatment and control.
