The ebola virus epidemic has now claimed at least 4,000 lives in the deadliest epidemic to date, which the World Health Organisation declared on 8 August to be a public health emergency of international concern.

The Faculty of Travel Medicine of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow is a world leader in the provision of professional development and support to health professionals involved in aspects of travel health. This includes healthcare professionals who advise travellers intending to travel to endemic countries, healthcare workers currently volunteering for service in ebola affected areas, and infectious disease physicians at the front line of providing care for incoming travellers from affected areas.

The Faculty has prepared an information and advice guide for travellers and healthcare workers in order to support the prevention of further spread of this disease. This guide is available to download here.
