Public authorities and organisations in Sweden are mobilising their resources in an effort to halt the Ebola epidemic in West Africa. Karolinska Institutet arranged a meeting to discuss existing challenges in terms of organising aid initiatives and there is a course starting on Monday that will prepare medical staff for their work in the countries most severely hit by Ebola.

Due to the emergency situation, Karolinska Institutet, along with the Public Health Agency of Sweden and financial support from the National Board of Health and Welfare, has organised a two day course aimed at medical staff who intend to work in the areas affected. The course will teach participants how to curb the spread of Ebola and how to work in the field. The training will initially take place on three occasions, starting on Monday 13 October.
