Message from Sierra Leone Hospital Board Re: Ebola Volunteers

UMCOR's support to the Ebola response has been focused on providing grants for our partners on ground to continue to provide medical services for non-Ebola cases. We have not been engaged in medical response/ Ebola treatment.  For medical personnel willing to volunteer for Ebola Response, we follow the recommendations from CDC. Basically;
1. All intending volunteers are required to take a brief course on Ebola offered by the CDC before deployment
2. Volunteers are also encouraged to register with USAID which is the coordinating agency for American volunteers to ensure proper safety and evacuation arrangements if needed.
UMCOR is unable to directly coordinate the deployment of medical personnel at this time.
