MRU Ebola Confab Ends In Monrovia
By Calvin Brooks, LINA

MONROVIA, August 28 (LINA) – A conference of the four Mano River Union (MRU) countries on the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) has ended the Monrovia with a joint communiqué advancing several recommendations.

The delegates from Liberia, Ivory Coast, Guinea and Sierra Leone in the communiqué recommended developing a harmonized framework for adherence to ethical standards during health disasters with appropriate and approved mechanisms for vaccines, therapeutic agents and testing methods.

They also called for developing a platform to conduct additional rigorous clinical trials of vaccines, therapeutic agents and diagnostics to eradicate Ebola and to identify a harmonized cross-country strategic framework to build capacity in the areas of ethics, regulatory affairs, research and infrastructure.

The four countries in the joint communiqué also recommended that countries should share information, experiences and good practices during and after health emergencies and collaborate, including networking, with local and international partners in the sub-region.

The communiqué then called on the governments of the four MRU countries to provide the required support and political will to implement the recommendations.

The communiqué acknowledged the contributions of the international community and organizations towards the fight against Ebola in the three affected countries, and hoped that they would continue their assistance.

The two-day conference, which was held at the Monrovia City Hall, brought together more than 80 participants from Liberia, Sierra Leone, Ivory Coast, Guinea and the United States of America, among others.
