Enhance the image and reputation of local health workers, ambulance teams, and those who burry the death
A big problem is that all those locals who fight against Ebola and work in the different area are also stigmatised - and often resign (http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2014/07/31/world/africa). Some are expelled from their families or avoided by the community, because people think they will bring the virus to their communities. This is a hug risk for the much needed recruitment of people to stop the further spread of the disease. Through radio messages and billboard those who continue to work should be celebrated as heroes as well.
1) to prevent them to stop working in the different fields
2) to encourage those professionals to stay/get engaged
Through radio and TV messages authorities should emphasie that those people:
- Do a service to a nation
- Get a salary (which they also should do)
- Get protective equipment and best wokring conditions as possible with the support of the international community which protects them from the desease
