Ebola has long been known in Uganda and the risk now is extreme. The program is coordinated through close partner Dept Family Medicine, Makerere University, Kampala, and directed by Dr Innocent Besigye

One of the main problems which has been responsible for the recent catastrophic epidemic in Africa has been the lack specialized training in community health personnel both in identification as well as in the proper control measures to be taken if the disease is suspected.
