Donors and WHO responded too slowly to West Africa Ebola outbreak – report

A new report by a UK parliamentary committee has shockingly revealed today (Thursday, December 18) that the World Health Organization (WHO) and the nations that fund it failed to respond quickly and effectively to the deadly West Africa Ebola outbreak despite repeated warnings by aid agencies.

The House of Commons International Development Committee said the international response was still “being outpaced on all fronts” by the spread of the the deadly virus in Sierra Leone with cases rising dramatically.

The UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) also came in for criticism from the parliamentary committee.
