The ISARIC Global Support Centre has been approached to assist the World Health Organization (WHO) in delivering training to support Ebola preparedness in countries bordering the DRC. This comes in response to Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus declaration of the ongoing Ebola outbreak in the DRC as a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC).
The training will be on the delivery of optimised standard care, Monitored Emergency Use of Unregistered and Investigational Interventions (MEURI), and Good Clinical Practice (GCP). Training materials have been prepared and we are assembling a faculty of trainers. All training is to be delivered in English with full support from WHO for travel and insurance. The planned training programme is a total of 5 days in the first instance. If you are interested in delivering GCP alone, there would only be a few days requirement in country.
This is a fantastic opportunity to show the power of the ISARIC membership to provide a proficient, coordinated and agile response to this request.
If you are interested in joining the training faculty or for more information, please contact Nina Jamieson at
