IM4DC Ebola Virus Disease risk management

IM4DC has implemented a protocol to manage risks and welfare issues associated with Ebola Virus Disease in certain countries in West Africa. This protocol is to manage welfare of participants and staff in IM4DC activities, and risks associated with travel restrictions to and from West Africa.

As much as possible, IM4DC activities in West Africa and involving West Africans in other locations are continuing as planned, although some may be postponed or modified at the request of host countries or due to travel restrictions.

The protocol is available from IM4DC on request at 

It provides information about Ebola Virus Disease and its transmission, managing travel to and from West Africa, and what to do if someone feels or appears unwell.
