Reactivation of HOT for the Ebola epidemic, Second update

Après la deuxième vague de l'épidémie d'Ebola en juin marquée par une hausse du nombre de décès, les équipes de la Croix-Rouge et MSF se sont déployés dans les districts de Kailahun et Kenema en Sierra Leone et demandé la réactivation de la communauté OpenStreetMap pour produire des cartes détaillées. L'équipe humanitaire d'OpenStreetMap (HOT) fait le pont avec les humanitaires et les différents partenaires. Un spécialiste SIG de CartONG a été déployé sur le terrain de nouveau pour soutenir MSF. Nous coordonnons avec CartONG et les spécialistes SIG de la Croix-Rouge américaine. Nous sommes également en liaison avec des représentants de l'Organisation mondiale de la Santé (OMS) et le Bureau des Nations Unies pour la Coordinaion des affaires humanitaires (OCHA) et divers partenaires pour assurer une identification rapide des zones à couvrir et informer les diverses organisations humanitaires sur les services disponibles.
