Community Based Protection in Liberia

In 2014 Liberia suffered a deadly outbreak of Ebola that spread quickly throughout the country and claimed the lives of more than three thousand people. Although recent weeks have seen a considerable drop in the number of confirmed Ebola cases, Liberia Red Cross remains on the frontline in the battle to contain the outbreak as it moves into a new phase.

Neima Nora Candy, National Ebola Coordinator for Liberia Red Cross, explains how the battle is being fought and why community based protection is so important right now.
