John Caulker’s TV interview on community led Ebola response efforts

JC on Newsmax 11-13-14In this powerful 2-part interview on NewsMaxTV, John Caulker identifies the missing dimension in Ebola response in Sierra Leone – mobilizing communities and ordinary people to lead. He talks about the leadership role rural women are taking in sensitizing their communities now, and the need for more channels to support that important role.

John argues eloquently for external aid to do more than just focus on treating the virus, but for it to also support LONG TERM community strengthening. This would help mobilize trust in communities now (the needed ingredient for preventing the spread of the virus), and also leave the country better prepared for the next challenge.
