Local communities are vital in the fight against the pandemic

“Local development agents, and political, civil society and religious leaders are on the ground, communicating closely with communities on a daily basis, to raise awareness of the fight against the virus. The measures put in place over the last decade to combat the various epidemics, particularly the Ebola virus, have made it possible to ensure that infrastructure, people and resources can be mobilized quickly.”
