The Ebola Disease Facts Campaign literature was produced as a joint venture by the Vanderbilt Institute of Global Health, Higher Education and Ministry of the United Methodist Church, and Discipleship Ministries of the United Methodist Church.

"Ebola Disease Facts For Community and Household Health" was prepared by Richard A. “Ran” Nisbett, Adjunct Professor for the Institute for Global Health at the Vanderbilt School of Medicine in Nashville. It currently is being distributed in Liberia and soon will be available in Sierra Leone. The piece has been translated from English to French for distribution in Côte d’Ivoire and Guinea.

“In the African United Methodist Church, clergy are spiritual leaders and also information leaders,” said Robin Pippin, Director of Contextual Resource Development and Distribution for the Central Conference Sustainable Resourcing Initiative at Discipleship Ministries.  “ … If clergy have really good information about this health crisis, they can share it with their congregants, whether in a sermon or a teaching or even some other setting altogether.”
