    Ebola in Spain: Doctors Without Borders has shared protocols with the Spanish Crisis Committee

    The medical humanitarian organization has also shared the general principles and methodology training to deal with epidemics of hemorrhagic fevers.

    Doctors Without Borders (MSF) has maintained a formal exchange of protocols against Ebola virus with the crisis committee established in Madrid following infection nursing assistant Teresa Romero. Since the beginning of the crisis in Spain, MSF offered to share technical knowledge with the health authorities, which has resulted in a series of meetings in recent days with the expert committee.

    "Our action protocols for hemorrhagic fevers, like those of other organizations have been built up over twenty years of experience in the field and we believe it can be valuable to share our knowledge in this area," explains Raquel Ayora, MSF Director of Operations. "It is important to note that, so far, these epidemics have occurred in countries with weak health systems and in precarious contexts. Therefore, the translation of these protocols to a complex system such as Spain health corresponds to the technical committee of experts, to be determined what aspects or actions can be applied in the Spanish health system. "
