Welcome to the EFFO project

EFFO is a trai­ning pro­gramme for health-care fa­ci­li­ties that need to de­tect and care for suspec­ted cases of Ebola un­til re­loca­tion to a treat­ment centre is possible.

EFFO stands for “Efficiency by Edification.” Skills and know­ledge for medi­cal perso­nnel will be prac­ticed with EFFO.

The project is prima­rily aimed at coun­tries con­sidered as high risk coun­tries by the WHO in terms of Ebola impor­tation. The project acti­vities comple­ment exis­ting mea­sures in these coun­tries and thus form part of the natio­nal Ebola pre­pared­ness.

In prin­ciple, EFFO is avai­lable to all health-care faci­lities that want to pre­pare for the manage­ment of highly conta­gious and life-threate­ning diseases.
