#ISurvivedEbola
(Sierra Leone, Liberia, Guinea)

#ISurvivedEbola is the first campaign to directly engage Ebola survivors from Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone in the national and international initiative to end the ongoing outbreak. The campaign places survivor stories at the center of efforts to:

• Inform the West African general public about the virus and how they can protect themselves and their communities from it;
• Reduce stigmatization and promote reintegration of Ebola survivors; and
• Shift the international narrative around the Ebola outbreak away from fear and despair, toward resilience and hope, while vigorously addressing the remaining challenges.

Commissioned by the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation and Vulcan Productions, #ISurvivedEbola is being implemented by PCI Media Impact in collaboration with UNICEF. The campaign is part of Paul G. Allen’s broader #TackleEbola initiative, and is consistent with Mr. Allen’s overall efforts.
