NGO Conducting Ebola Awareness With Health Centers
By D. Ignatius Roberts, Grand Cape Mount County Correspondent

ROBERTSPORT, October 10 (LINA) -The international NGO, Medical Teams International (MTI), a partner of the Grand Cape Mount County Health Team (CHT), is conducting an Ebola prevention campaign with 32 health facilities in the county.

This was disclosed by the MTI representative, Oretha Paye, at the County Ebola Task Force coordination meeting held in Sinje Town Wednesday.

She said the campaign is intended to empower health workers to perform their functions with professionalism in the interest of the people.

The MTI official indicated that they are also conducting Ebola sensitization and prevention campaigns in towns and villages in the county.

According to Ms Paye the sensitization program has so far covered over 90 towns and villages in Porkpa District.

Madame Paye, however, said bad road condition is hampering the smooth functioning of MTI, noting that they cannot reach certain villages and towns that are not accessible by vehicles and motorbikes.

She pledged MTI's commitment to provide 100 gallons of fuel monthly to the county health team to enhance its capacity in the fight against Ebola.
