EBOLA AWARENESS FILM PREMIERED IN MALI

Bamako, Mali, 31 January 2015 - A film on the measures people should take to avoid contracting the Ebola virus, locally produced and sponsored by African gold miner Randgold Resources, was premiered today at the five-star Hotel Salam in Bamako.

Among the dignitaries who attended the first screening of the film, which will also be made available in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone, were Malian Minister of Health and Public Hygiene, the Honourable Mr Ousmane Koné and the Malian Minister of Mines, the Honourable Mr Boubou Cissé.

The government of Mali and the United Nations declared Mali an Ebola-free country on 18 January 2015 following a remarkably successful joint effort by the country's health authorities and its mining industry to curb the spread of the disease.

Chaired by Randgold, the Mali Ebola Private Sector Mobilisation Group, comprising the mining companies operating in the country, provided a coordinated response in support of the government's campaign against the deadly virus. Among other actions, medical practitioners employed by these companies met on a daily basis to provide technical input to the state's health professionals, provide community clinics with training and equipment, develop protocols and procedures for Ebola preparedness, and assist with border post screenings.
