WHO, WFP Partnership Vows To Treat Last Ebola Case

MONROVIA, March 12 (LINA) - The World Health Organization (WHO) in partnership with World Food Program (WFP) says the Ebola crisis will not end until “we identify, reach and successfully treat every last case.”

According to a WHO release, recognizing this goal, the WHO-WFP partnership - a joint technical and operational force – will continue providing the support required achieving zero cases.

Using a joint operations approach, the two agencies agreed to combine their expertise in more than 60 priority districts and areas on the ground in Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone, the three most Ebola-affected countries.

“Over the past seven months, partnerships have been crucial in fighting this devastating outbreak. WFP has worked with our partners to respond to communities’ most basic needs -- making sure food is reaching everywhere that the Ebola virus has hit,” WHO said.

 “This partnership increases both agencies’ abilities to reach, monitor and respond to the needs of all people touched by Ebola,” says Dr Margaret Chan, WHO Director-General.
