International Community Must Take Action On Nutrition In Ebola-Hit Nations Before Crisis
The Guardian: Ebola: how to prevent a lethal legacy for food security
Saul Guerrero, director of operations at Action Against Hunger U.K.
“…There is growing evidence that the number of food-insecure people in these [Ebola-hit] countries is rapidly increasing. … The first task must be to ensure that food is available in remote areas and [to] those that were quarantined. Action is needed to help families and farmers to grow and harvest food. Reinvigorating trading and commerce must also be prioritized by guaranteeing traders a demand for their products. … The international community can learn from the mistakes and delays of the outbreak response by taking action before these tell-tale signs of need lead to a nutrition crisis” (2/23).
