The Ebola Intensified Preparedness Programme is a project, initially funded by The Rockefeller Foundation for a six-month period, that offers:
– Training in affected and not yet affected countries;
– Online material to learn about this capacity building approach; and
– Executive briefings to advise risk management and risk communication.
Our Intensified Preparedness Programme (IPP) focuses on communication and community work to help with preparedness and response, to establish trust between communities and health care workers and to enhance resilience in the communities.
This programme is based on innovative, culturally sensitive risk management and risk communication approaches that support both the short-term crisis response efforts and the longer-term capacity building that relies on networking and communication.
