To respond to the current Ebola crisis, mPowering Frontline Health Workers and IntraHealth International together with TechChange are delivering this free online webinar series. "In these webinars, more than 15 international and in-country health organizations will share information with participants on how to support health workers responding to Ebola."
The presentations and discussions in the webinars will (1) describe how to leverage available resources to train, support, and communicate with frontline health workers and others involved in the direct Ebola response through mobile technology; (2) consider ways to connect implementers to resources, collaborators, and sources of information; and (3) explore how to improve opportunities to enable implementers and programmers to share efforts, collaborate, and avoid duplication.
The four one-hour webinars will happen over 4 days each starting at 10:00 am EDT. The schedule and topics are as follows:
October 21: Learning and information needs for frontline health workers
October 23: Health system support for frontline health workers
October 28: Community mobilization and interactions with clients
October 30: Data to support effective response and case management

Health professionals from over 15 countries have already signed up, and participants represent government, health care facilities, international NGOs, and civil society, and other sectors.
