Calling Ebola survivors for help.

Ebola survivors are generally immune to future infection with the virus strain that made them sick. Our idea is to call back the Ebola Survivors for help. Even if they are not trained as doctors or healthcare personnel, just by being present Ebola survivors can make a big change on the field. So we asked, how might we create a system that will encourage Ebola Survivors to help the patients?

Distributing the data, informing people about the disease and treatment, helping the healthcare personnel to get sanitized are the basic supports that might create a greater change. Creating a connection between the patients and their families while the patients are hospitalized can help the healthcare workers build a communication web and trust.

Here is a system we designed for survivors to help people survive.
