In crisis settings: training NGO national staff and partners
In crisis settings, training always seems a long way from emergency.
However, we’re convinced that it is even more needed to increase the level of response to the needs, both qualitatively and quantitatively: continuing education programmes for various stakeholders must be designed and created for these specific contexts, with the support of local partners, as shown by the surveys that we conduct in different countries with the help of NGOs’ coordination platforms.
372 people trained from CAR, Niger and Chad
86% work for an international organisation or a United Nations agency,
7,5% for a community or national organisation,
6,5% for the private or public sector.
Ebola: training the future prevention and response teams
In Guinea, 2014 saw successive outbreaks of measles, meningitis and the Ebola virus. For the latter, it took four months, from December 2013 to March 2014, for the Ebola virus to be confirmed by laboratory testing.
The delay in diagnosing and confirming this epidemic highlighted the weakness in the epidemiological monitoring system in Guinea which prevented the implementation of an appropriate response.
207 beneficiaries. In 2015, the Bioforce Institute, in charge of the training component of the PREPARE project, delivered initial training for 207 members of the eight Regional Epidemic Early Warning and Response teams.
