Epidemic Control for Volunteers (ECV)
The Epidemic Control for Volunteers (ECV) Manual and Toolkit is a resource that has, since 2008, been developed and promoted by the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) to assist National Societies and their volunteers rapidly and efficiently prevent and respond to epidemics and outbreaks. It is a simple and easy-to- use information and training package that helps National Societies quickly train staff and volunteers, giving definitions, simple symptoms, prevention and epidemic management for a range of diseases. Accompanying action tools instruct the volunteers on what actions to use to address the spread of the disease, and community tools contain messages that volunteers need to disseminate to contain or prevent the further spread of the disease.
