Dear Colleagues

Have any of you seen the Social Science in Action Platform ( ...looks relevant to neil's question: What lessons can be learned from West Africa that can be applied to the situation in DR Congo?

Published on this platform there is a policy briefing summarising sociocultural issues concerning events related to death, burial, funerals and mourning in context of ebola in DRC AND a video about it as well.

Also on this platform there are two other "collections" (tabs) : Ebola Response Anthropology Platform and Epidemic Response Anthropology Platform, they list guidelines and briefings.

It's a partnership between IDS, anthrologica and LSHTM.
