Health Workers

The emergency services – they are the real heroes. Putting their lives on the line, they managed to keep the Ebola virus in check. At the same time, they themselves became increasingly stigmatised. In this film, two health workers, Mohamed and Alieu, talk about the challenges they faced and how they overcame them.

»Most people, including my friends, were afraid of me because of my job. Even my father told me I should leave the house.«
