Hi Kate, It's been fun working with you on this idea and others, so I thought I'd invite you to join my team. No commitment on your part required; just a gesture, at this point, of appreciation and inclusion. Thank you!

There is a lack of trained medical staff with the knowledge and skills of ebola and its treatment. Therefore, my idea is to have a bank of knowledgeable and trained staff on call through a rota system. These people can be contacted via medical staff

Hi Zoe,

Please do develop your own ideas. They can be inspired by the thought starters or not at all. Please do be innovative, bold and think outside the box. I am sure you can come up with much better ideas than one I would come up with.

Hi Abdo!

I have been using your bot. I am happy to say it is very user-friendly and integrates into Facebook so I can use it on the go.

What happens if I want further support or help?

How much additional work is needed to adapt the bot for someone with a chronic disease or for a different language, for example, or for a mum from conception to 1-year after the baby is born?

p.s. I like the graphics. Also, what does it mean when the bot responds with 'I will ask an expert and then get back to you'.

Hi Judy!

Thank you for adding your personal experiences to the conversation. It really helps give life to the 15% figure.

Hopefully there will be some ideas on self-assessment/discovery may be combined with support. Please do add any ideas of your own in this area even if you can't take them forward.
