Kassanda District Task Force hosted the National Strategic Committee and Response Partners on Ebola a number of times after President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni announced the 21 days lockdown. They held dialogues with the community at Bweyongede, the district council and other areas many times to increase awareness .

Hon Dr Jane Ruth Aceng, the Minister of Health said members of the strategic committee including the Ministry of Health and partners (WHO, UNICEF, CDC) visited Kassanda district and engaged the district task force to understand how the response to Ebola Epidemic was progressing

“Thereafter we travelled to Bweyongede village in Kalwana subcounty where all the cases have come from to sensitize the communities and respond to their issues of concern. Together we can save lives and end the Epidemic”, said Dr Aceng

She said hiding someone who has been in contact with an Ebola-infected person is dangerous to you and the entire community. Call the nearest health facility immediately for further assistance!

Dr Yonas Tegegn WOLDEMARIAM, World Health Representative in Uganda said in any outbreak response, community awareness is essential. We hope that the dialogue with the Bweyongede community today will strengthen their engagement in the ebola response in Uganda.

World Health Organisation has since the beginning of this response mobilized resources to support this pillar.

Other leaders who attended the Bweyongede community dialogue in Kassanda are Dr Diana Atwine, Permanent Secretary Ministry of Health, Yonas Tegegn WOLDEMARIAM, World Health Organisation representative in Uganda, Munir Safieldin, head of UNICEF, Dr Henry Mwebesa, the Director General of Health Services and others listened to the community and responded to questions about ebola and the response in their community.
