EBOLA CHRONO OR THE DISTRIBUTION OF THE INFORMATION
Ebola Chrono, Conakry
Context and issues
Internews produced in Guinea, EBOLA CHRONO, a daily radio program and an electronic newsletter about Ebola. The radio program is broadcasted by 34 regional stations. The news bulletin is sent to approximately 200 people by e-mail. Internews wishes to multiply the tools of information in a way that all the media, the regional radios, the electronic bulletin and the social media, conjugate their efforts and play a vital role in the impact and the distribution of messages affecting the questions of health. This project is financed by OFDA-USAID since December, 2014 and it will be in operation until April, 2016.
The objective of the present session is to form, remotely, two writers of the electronic bulletin Ebola Chrono as well as the journalists and other agents of Internews in Guinea regarding social media (Facebook, YouTube, Twitter). It is advisable to underline that given that Ebola is now under control in Guinea, Internews will put more and more the accent on the problems of health generally in its media.
Because of the narrow relation between the various media, it was suggested by PRWB holding a single session which would combine all the participants. The session was kept by Skype September 12th. It concerned the key elements of an effective information. Both trainers were Yvan Cliche for the social media and Colette Schwartz for the newsletter. A presentation was prepared and transmitted to the participants before the session.
