Free course online: Protect Yourself from Ebola
Understanding Ebola and How You Can Avoid It

Ebola Response Anthropology Platform
We are a network of anthropologists from around the world providing advice on how to engage with crucial socio-cultural and political dimensions of the Ebola outbreak and build locally-appropriate interventions. One of our primary activities is to provide a rapid, anthropologically and locally informed advice service for policy and practice partners involved in the broader Ebola repsonse in West Africa. We are currently focusing in particular (but not exclusively) on five themes:

- Identification and Diagnosis
- Care of the sick
- Attending to the dead
- Clinical trials and interventions
- Preparedness of neighbouring/at risk countries

Open discussion forum and listserve set up by the American Anthropological Association (see here and here).
