Health care workers place stickers with their images on them as they don their PPE (personal protective equipment) in the “green zone.” They will enter the “red zone” to care for patients at ELWA II’s ETU (Ebola treatment unit) in Monrovia, Liberia on Sunday, March 1, 2015. Occidental College professor Mary Beth Heffernan’s PPE Portrait Project involves photographing health care workers and making disposable, adhesive prints of their images, which are then placed on the worker’s PPE.
ELWA II has one of the largest numbers of Ebola patients in Liberia at the moment and was the first ETU to open in Monrovia, Liberia’s capital city.
