We have worked together with the Mali Health Organizing Project to create one-page factsheets about the Ebola virus for use in Mali and neighboring countries. The factsheets are available in French and Bambara, as MS Word files and as PDF documents. Please share this information with anyone who can use it.
As of September 27, 2014, there have been no confirmed cases of Ebola in Mali. However, according to Mali’s Health Minister Ousmane Koné, there have been 25 reports of suspected Ebola, but so far all of these turned out to be negative. The country is on high alert. As we have seen in the areas hardest hit by the epidemic, rumors and misinformation spread quickly, hinder prevention efforts, and cause unnecessary deaths.
For more information about these factsheets, please contact the Mali Health Organizing Project‘s staff in Boston or Bamako.
We encourage you to support organizations that are helping to fight the Ebola epidemic, such as Doctors without Borders, Catholic Relief Services, Samaritan’s Purse, PSI, or others.
