The Story of Ebola
Global Health Media Project
Produced by Global Health Media Project in collaboration with the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, UNICEF, and Yoni Goodman. Download link:
This animated story is told by a young girl whose grandfather dies from Ebola and puts the rest of her family at risk. It brings to life the many messages that are so crucial in understanding this disease on a community level.

The film makes visible the invisible Ebola germs to help people see and understand how Ebola spreads and how to protect themselves. Critical messages are woven through the story so that people better understand Ebola, see themselves within the context of an outbreak, and see how to act in ways that can keep themselves safe from the disease and protect their communities.
This film is intended to help meet the need for better education and awareness that is critical in eradicating this disease in West Africa, and whenever and wherever potential outbreaks may threaten communities in the future.

    I like how there is a media group not exploiting ebola as something to just fear. There is too much manipulation in the world, especially in the U.S. abusing their given amendments.

    I'm glad everyone stayed calm about her having the Ebola virus, her mother survived and so did the rest of the village. If it hadn't been for the girl and the nurse, many people could have died.
