“Include Ebola Survivors On Task Forces” - WHO Consultant

By D. Ignatius Roberts, LINA Grand Cape Mount Correspondent

ROBERTSPORT, September 11 (LINA) - The World Health Organization (WHO) health consultant to Grand Cape Mount County, Dr. Akpaka Kalu, has suggested the inclusion on Ebola task forces of survivors to educate citizens about the danger and prevention of the disease.

According to the Liberia News Agency (LINA), Kalu made the recommendation during the county’s Ebola Task Force coordination meeting held in Sinje Town, Garwula District on Wednesday.

Kalu noted that this was important because the survivors should be used as psycho-social counselors” in the fight against the disease.

“Unfortunately, Ebola survivors are being stigmatized by Liberians instead of looking at them as resource persons to educate them about the danger of the virus,” he observed.

Kalu then cautioned Liberians against stigmatizing Ebola survivors in the communities, adding “this could render them vulnerable and make them feel separated in the society.”
