Sensitizing communities in Uganda on the prevention of the Ebola Virus Disease | UNICEF Uganda

Ebola is terrifying for adults – but even more so for children.

On 20 September 2022, Uganda’s Ministry of Health declared an outbreak of Ebola Virus Disease - Sudan strain, following a positive test result for one adult male in Mubende District in central Uganda.

To support the Government of the Republic of Uganda and the Ministry of Health in the fight against Ebola at the height of its outbreak, UNICEF sensitized communities through door-to-door and community engagement and sharing to educate adults and children.

Awareness is the best way to prevent the spread of this virus. Strategically communicating the correct knowledge and best practices to affected communities is critical to prevent the spread of Ebola.
