Plymouth University have developed a 3D interactive game to help fight Ebola.

The programme, which is similar to a video game, is designed to teach people how to stop the disease from spreading.

It's being trialled in Sierra Leone at Masanga hospital and allows learners to be 'immersed' in simulated environments.

We are delighted to work with such a diverse and knowledge-rich partnership to make a real difference in the fight against Ebola. Immersive learning and simulation are instrumental platforms for educating our own trainee doctors, and the methods we use translate well to the situation in West Africa.

– Dr Tom Gale, Clinical Associate Professor at Plymouth University
