SDG 3: Good health and well-being

Au total, 16 200 personnes ont travaillé comme volontaires dans le cadre de la riposte au virus Ebola, mais parmi tous ces « travailleurs d’Ebola », ceux qui étaient vêtus d’une combinaison de protection les recouvrant des pieds à la têtes ont probablement acquis la plus grande notoriété.
