Ebola: Requesting Volunteer Laboratory Support in Sierra Leone

November 20, 2014

Dear Members of IANPHI,

In support of Public Health England's efforts to recruit volunteers to help staff the UK Diagnostic Laboratories in Sierra Leone as part of the response to the Ebola outbreak, the IANPHI Secretariat is sending this cover letter from Duncan Selbie, Chief Executive, Public Health England.  Volunteers will receive training and expenses will be covered by PHE. As this important request marks the critical need to ensure sufficient volunteers over the 2014 Christmas and New Year Period, we sincerely hope to receive an early and strong response from our members. All volunteers have been asked to register their interest by email to: ebola.deployment@phe.gov.uk, and potential volunteers will be sent an information pack and application form by PHE. 

Kind regards,

Mauricio Hernandez-Avila

Secretary General, IANPHI

Director General, INSP Mexico
