dc.description.abstractIn response to what the World Health Organisation has declared “a public health emergency of international concern”(1), UK Defence has deployed around 800 personnel to support the Department for International Development (DfID) in the battle against Ebola virusdisease (EVD) in Sierra Leone. As part of this strategy, a twelve-bed EVD Treatment Unit (EVDTU) has been built and established on the Freetown peninsula, to provide reassurance to international and UK healthcare workers deploying to Sierra Leone. Alongside the EVDTU is an 80-bed Ebola treatment unit, run by Save The Children International, which provides medical care to Ebola victims from the community.
