Aspen Medicine Trainer and Physician Assistant Matthan Saa, told the Liberia News Agency that following the training the participants will work in the newly constructed Ebola Treatment Unit (ETU).

He said 30 of the 140 participants will also form part of the training to coordinate the medical aspect at the ETU complimenting the efforts of the non-medical staff.

He disclosed that the participants will be taught how to be disciplined in implementing all safety requirements including the
constant wearing of the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) as well as the overview of the Ebola situation in Liberia.

The ETU will be officially opened for normal operations on January 6, 2015.
