• Frontline health worker learning & information needs related to Ebola response
• Tools and materials available to support frontline health worker and community volunteer training, and
• Technologies that could be used to get vital information into the hands of people quickly
The webinar will feature 2-3 short presentations on tools to address the learning and information needs of frontline health workers with facilitated Q&A and discussion for participants and presenters to share information, ideas, and perspectives.
