Response to the ‘Defeating Ebola in Sierra Leone’ pledging conference
Today the UK-hosted ‘Defeating Ebola in Sierra Leone’ pledging conference took place in London.
Diane Sheard, UK Director of the ONE Campaign, spoke following the conference: “The scale and devastation wrought by the Ebola outbreak in West Africa is truly shocking, and today’s conference shows the importance of a coordinated and sustained response from the global community.
“The focus now must be on delivering the necessary resources – from specialist personnel to protective clothing – as swiftly as possible. This is a global health emergency that presents a massive danger. Every day we delay is a missed opportunity to turn the tide of this crisis.”
