Local journalists in Africa will be given funds to develop online and mobile tools to highlight and combat the spread of Ebola under a pioneering new campaign.
The Global Editors Network have launched the #HackAgainstEbola campaign at an event taking place in Accra, the capital city of Ghana.
Working in collaboration with PenPlusBytes, a Pan-African non-profit organisation, the Global Editors Network invited more than 30 journalists from local media and NGOs to develop new life-saving prototypes to fight the epidemic on the ground.
The World Health Organisation has said that we could have 10,000 new cases of Ebola a week by Christmas if the epidemic isn't handled properly.
