By Korboi Gbelewala, Lofa County Correspondent

VOINJAMA, April 27 (LINA) - Plan Liberia and Radio Kintoma in Lofa County have signed an agreement to jointly undertake dissemination of awareness messages on the deadly Ebola disease in the county.

The first case of Ebola was recorded in Foya, Lofa County, which shares borders with Guinea where the Ebola disease was raging before entering Liberia. 

According to the Liberia News Agency, Radio Kintoma Manager John Gayflor signed on behalf of the station, while Plan Liberia Country Director Dumarou Koala signed for the NGO.

The agreement requires both entities to implement a coordinated effort on public awareness through radio programs and strategies to respond to the outbreak of the Ebola virus in Lofa.

The agreement also requires Plan Liberia and Radio Kintoma to improve outreach in healthcare services, to help avert the possible spread of the virus in the county.

According to the Liberia News Agency, the agreement also states that both parties will work together to fulfill their common goals and mutual responsibilities, while affirming their individual identities.

As part of its responsibilities under the agreement, Radio Kintoma will extend its broadcast hours and host daily, hourly phone-in programs and talk shows with health workers and staff of the Ministry of Internal Affairs.

For its part, Plan Liberia will provide funding for the public awareness radio programs, and also the running cost for the extra broadcast hours.
