This brief summarises some key considerations about mobilising youth and youth groups in the Ebola response in Sierra Leone and Liberia. The details have been collated from suggestions and insights provided by networks of anthropologists in the UK and US who work in Sierra Leone and Liberia (both in-‐country and remotely). These are general considerations that are broadly relevant to mobilising youth in the response, but further investigation into local specificities is required. The French version of the brief is available here.
