Post a reply: Question to those working on Ebola in charge of feeding patients

Use of en-net is subject to the Terms and Conditions.

Dear colleagues.
In 2014, WHO launched interim guidelines on Nutritional care of children and adults with Ebola Virus Disease. I would like to know whether these guidelines have been useful in your work in Ebola Treatment Centers.

1. Did you use these guidelines then or are you currently using them in DRC? (I know that the 2014 WHO guidelines are also now established for DRC in a more or less similar form).

2. If you have not been using them then or now in DRC, is there a specific reason for that?

3. Do you think these guidelines are useful? Are they practical? Feasible? Clear? If not, why? How should they be adjusted?

4. Have you developed other guidance that you are using to feed the EVD infected patients?

5. Lastly, does anyone know whether these 2014 WHO guidelines ever have been evaluated? (how they were used, etc)

I very much appreciate your thoughts on this. Thanks so much!
