Gibril Kamara, 38, is a survivor of the Ebola outbreak in Sierra Leone, the region’s worst affected country. Since December 2014 he has taken on a new role as a simulated patient trainer at the IOM managed National Training Academy for Frontline Ebola Practitioners in Freetown. Approximately 300 national and foreign health care workers are trained at the Academy every week by a team of 30 IOM trainers. Mr. Kamara and his fellow survivor’s work is crucial to providing a realistic training experience.
