Healthcare workers and Laboratory staff are on the frontline of responses to outbreaks like Ebola Virus and Haemorrhagic Fever. The Ebola Virus outbreak in West Africa 2013-2016 saw many first responders being infected. Improving on Personal Protective Equipment will help prevent the impact on first responders and hence save lives. It is important to make a contribution to the efforts by WHO and task teams to improve PPE. The Global Health Laboratory and scientific community have an opportunity to make an important contribution. We would like to hear your comments and suggestion in order to make a contribution by the 28 September 2017.
We urge you to participate in this effort that ultimate improves our response to global health threats.
