UN Must Act Before Ebola Goes Global!

In Global Advocacy, Global Featured, News by Fiona Ip

By the World Health Organization’s (WHO’s) own admission, the Congo’s Ebola outbreak is now on the verge of imminent spread into bordering countries due to rampant militant attacks on all aspects of the response used to fight the deadly virus, including personnel, equipment and facilities.

AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) recently sent a letter to United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres, urging him to enforce an existing UN Security Council resolution that would assure the safety and security of Ebola response efforts, as well as to press WHO to increase vaccination within affected areas.

With more than 1,800 Ebola cases and over 1,200 deaths since last August, Mr. Guterres must act now to adequately address the security crisis in the Congo, and WHO must begin vaccinating all individuals within the entire outbreak area and country.
