Donors Must Support West African Ebola Recovery Efforts To Protect Children, Pregnant Women

Huffington Post: It’s Too Early to Declare Victory Over Ebola
Carolyn S. Miles, president & CEO of Save the Children

“…The resurgence of Ebola in Liberia is a sharp reminder that all efforts to fight the epidemic must remain high and that the international community should continue to be mobilized. … Ebola has left thousands of children with limited access to basic health care, and prevented pregnant women from getting pre- and post-natal consultations because the resources and medical staff have been reoriented to fight against the epidemic. … The international community must help Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea to rebuild and strengthen health systems so they can ensure free access to basic health care while improving care for diseases that were neglected because of Ebola…” (7/10).
