More Commitment Needed To Stop Ebola Outbreak In West Africa

New York Times: Why Are We Ignoring a New Ebola Outbreak?
Ken Isaacs, vice president of programs and government relations for Samaritan’s Purse

“Three small, impoverished nations in West Africa — Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone — now demand the world’s attention as the deadly Ebola epidemic spins out of control, killing hundreds and threatening millions. … I urge all organizations with capacity in medical, public health, social mobilization, and water/sanitation to help in this fight. A disaster has descended upon West Africa, and it deserves the full attention of the international community. The world’s deadliest and most contagious disease is on a collision course with millions in major population centers. The situation is urgent. There is no time to wait” (7/24).
