Photo of the Week: halting Ebola begins with prevention

Amid the worst Ebola outbreak in history, UNICEF is supporting efforts to help prevent its further spread. Outreach workers speak with farmers about Ebola, its symptoms and how to prevent its spread, in Lofa County in Liberia in this photo taken by Ahmed Jallanzo.

The current Ebola outbreak in West Africa is the worst in history, and prevention is the only way towards curbing its spread. Some 4.5 million children under age 5 live in affected areas, where they are seeing the disease sicken their loved ones and disrupt basic services, such as healthcare and education.
