The aim of this weekly webinar is for folks to participate in an international Situation Report describing significant Ebola preparations for the upcoming week, contribute to discussions regarding their agencies work or experience in Ebola management so attendees can harvest best practices, and engage in a Q&A session to discuss any specific questions of interest to their agency.
