Additional resources on Ebola

While the trends appear heartening on the ground with generally fewer new cases in West Africa, there’s still much work to be done (see US Centers for Disease Control update). Here, we offer a few additional resources to supplement earlier posts (including the Ebola Response pocket library on a flash drive offered by WiderNet).

African Studies librarians have pointed out a UNICEF radio play from Radio Bintumani in Sierra Leone via SoundCloud and a variety of radio public service messages in African languages at the CDC.

Sharon Abramowitz provides her expert opinion with an anthropological perspective on how the US military should engage with the Ebola outbreak (via the London School of Economics and Political Economics blog on American politics). Nature also published an article focusing on Abramowitz’ perspective on the role ethnography can play in the Ebola crisis.

Last but not least is an open access Policy Note from the Nordic Africa Institute titled: “Ebola: accurate information prevents rumours and panic” (pdf download here).
