Title

UNICEF Contact Tracers

Description

Applying lessons from previous outbreaks, outreach workers began to spread across the region to spread Ebola prevention messages as early as April, 2014. Here, outreach workers deployed by UNICEF walk for miles to reach rural villages in Foy, Lofa County, Liberia. Nonetheless, Ebola continued to spread, partially because people did not believe the warnings.
