Health Ministers mostly from eleven West African countries, high ranking health officials and international partners are attending the two-day meeting which aims to agree on the best way to interrupt the transmission of the Ebola Virus to reduce the socio-economic impact of the disease and prevent future outbreaks.

The Ebola virus first struck human beings in 1976 in Yambuku, a village in the Democratic Republic of Congo, along the river Ebola. Since then, more than 20 Ebola outbreaks have occurred mainly in East and Central African countries.

In March 2014 Guinea notified WHO about cases of Ebola virus Disease. The cases were initially confined to rural Guinea with the epicenter being Gueckedou. What started as a rural outbreak has now spread to Conakry the capital of Guinea as well as cross border spread into Sierra Leone and Liberia.

The current Ebola outbreak has surpassed all other outbreaks in terms of cases, deaths and geographic spread across Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. As at 1st July 2014, a cumulative total of 750 cases and 455 deaths have been reported in the three affected countries

During the two-day emergency meeting, Ministers of health, technical experts and partners will focus on how best to bring this outbreak under control through surveillance and laboratories; case management and infection prevention and control; logistics and finances; and social mobilization and communication. It is expected that the outcome of the meeting will be the adoption a strategy for accelerated response to contain the Ebola outbreak in West Africa.
