Ebola Treatment Centre in Nzérékoré, Guinea
Alliance for International Medical Action (ALIMA) has been running a 40-bed Ebola Treatment Centre in Nzérékoré, Guinea since November 2014. Patients with confirmed Ebola infection are now being offered the new anti-viral agent, favipiravir, as part of a multi-center clinical trial run by the French National Institute for Health (INSERM) in collaboration with the Guinean Ministry of Health. The UN Mission for Ebola Emergency Response (UNMEER) has donated two vehicles for use at the treatment centre.
Two staff members put on protective gloves for their work at the Centre's Ebola Treatment Unit (ETU).
