Ebola: Then and Now - Ian Norton

Foreign medical teams coordination

THEN: At this time last year, the lack of Ebola treatment capacity and isolation facilities was hampering the rest of the response. We only had a few brave teams from Medecins Sans Frontiere, Emergency, and the International Red Cross.

NOW: The Liberian, Sierra Leonean and Guinean teams are now managing the Ebola treatment units on their own. When I went back in January 2015 to one of the treatment centres, I found a full working treatment unit which was acting as a training ground, almost an Ebola university, if you like.
