Ebola treatment and care
Recognizing early signs of Ebola virus disease (EVD), finding and screening suspected patients and providing early rehydration treatments are measures that health-care workers can take to help people survive EVD. This has to be done in a way that is safe for the health-care worker and respects the patient.
While the Ebola Treatment Units (ETU) are where patients can get the best care possible - with access to rehydration methods and protection from infecting their family and community – health workers and ETU personnel may become exposed to the virus.
WHO offers guidelines and resources for treating and caring for patients with EVD, spanning from clinical management safety procedures to psychological support and counselling.
On this page you will find best practices to follow when treating and caring for a person who is infected with EVD.
- Clinical care for survivors of Ebola virus disease
