I stumbled onto a very cool website today with very complete information on Ebola and management strategies. It is called MEDBOX. It is an innovative online library aimed at improving the quality of healthcare in humanitarian action, worldwide.

The Ebola Toolbox offers a comprehensive knowledge repository aimed at improving the effectiveness of interventions aimed at tackling EVD in emergencies. With over 90 documents relating to practical, hands-on fieldwork relating to Ebola, it is by now the largest collection of documents on EVD on the internet:

An independent internet platform supported by international agencies and scientific institutions active in humanitarian assistance and development, MEDBOX collates the increasing number of professional guidelines, textbooks and practical documents on health action available online today and brings these into the hands of humanitarian aid workers: when they need it, where they need it.

MEDBOX is a free-of-charge, open-source online library supported by funding from the German Foreign Ministry, the Humanitarian Innovation Fund and currently 20 international organizations and institutions.

With a 3-step, free-of-charge registration, users can set up their own library of favorites within MEDBOX. MEDBOX has currently over 1000 visitors per week, the majority of whom use the Ebola Toolbox.

MEDBOX is brought to you by the Medical Mission Institute, the Catholic Advisory Group for International Health.
