15 Margibi Health Workers Train In Medical, Management skills

KAKATA, September 7 (LINA) - Fifteen health workers of the Margibi County Health Team have commenced a week-long training in basic management and essential medical skills at the Ebola Treatment Unit (ETU) in Monrovia.

The training, sponsored by the World Health Organization, will expose the health workers to ways of treating patients infected with the Ebola virus and how to protect themselves from getting infected with the virus.

The training exercise was disclosed over the weekend by the Acting County Health Officer of Margibi County, Dr. Adolphus Yeiah.

Dr. Yeiah said when the health workers complete the training they will take over the Margibi County Ebola Treatment Unit that is to be established soon for the treatment of Ebola-related cases in the county.

He further said already the county administration of Margibi has designated a 20 bedroom guest house under construction to be used for the Ebola Treatment Unit.

He also said the cost of completing the treatment unit and holding center will be covered by Save the Children International, World Health Organization and International Medical Corporation (IMC).

He indicated that when the Ebola Treatment Unit is completed, it will put the C.H. Rennie Hospital in a better position to cater to other sicknesses that are not Ebola-related, avoiding other patients from coming into contact with Ebola patients.
