The Opera Village has been a permanent cooperation partner of the EFFO project since 2019. RKI and the Opera Village organised a joint-workshop on "High Consequence Infectious Diseases" (HCID) at Berlin. The aim was to connect different actors from the project country Burkina Faso as well as to build capacities on a local level.


In February 2020 a follow-up event is planned on the grounds of the Opera Village Africa in Burkina Faso. The Opera Village Africa will be responsible for the logistical organisation of the event. Furthermore an exchange in the field of theatre pedagogy and didactics is planned in order to implement new methods and adapt the training sessions better to the needs of the target group.

So far Burkina Faso had no confirmed Ebola fever case. However, the measures for preventing Ebola are generally effective against infectious diseases. Taking this into account the trainings are useful and the knowledge should be maintained.

A first pilot training in the Opera Village Africa took place in June 2017 were Ebola virus disease and the Lassa virus were discussed as well.
