Nick commented on Amplify survivors' stories

My un-informed understanding is that coverage is better than we may imagine. The MSF doctors tell us Vodafone and Orange are the biggest providers. Perhaps they could be partners?


Nick commented on Amplify survivors' stories

Washington, DC

Sorry for the shorter update earlier. This idea of survivors was an area of focus in this weekend's #FightingEbola challenge in DC. A whole team focused on the use of survivors for the entire weekend - really enlightening.

A few ideas which would be interest to run past the Survivors Conference on the 21st:

* Would a system of micro finance to financially support survivors be of interest?
* Would survivors want to opt-in by 'applying for a job' e.g.: transport, hospice, respite, education, companionship, etc?
* What would survivors need to be effective in the ETUs: special decon showers, emotional support, gear?
* How might we rebrand survivorship such that it's a status symbol not a stigma?
