WHO Virtual Press Conference following High Level Meeting on building resilient systems for health in Ebola-affected countries


WHAT: The 2014 Ebola virus disease outbreak in West Africa highlights how, in the absence of a functional health system that can monitor the situation and quickly develop an integrated response, an epidemic can proliferate rapidly and pose huge problems.

Recent reports from the most affected countries indicate that basic essential non-Ebola health services are severely disrupted.

If the epidemic does not trigger substantial investments in national and sub-national health systems and appropriate reforms in the worst affected countries, the effects of the outbreak will exacerbate the pre-existing weakness in the national and sub-national health systems, which will become even more fragile.

To address these broader systemic issues, the African Development Bank, the West African Health Organization, the World Bank and the World Health Organization will convene a High Level Meeting on Building Resilient Health Systems in Ebola affected countries from 10-11 December 2014 in Geneva, Switzerland.

WHEN: Virtual Press Briefing, Thursday 11 December, at 13:00 CET

WHERE: Geneva-based journalists may participate in the Library Room at WHO Headquarters. Journalists outside Geneva may dial in, and dial-in numbers will be provided early next week.

WHO:
• Dr Remy LAMAH, Minister of Health, Guinea
• Dr Abu Bakarr FOFANAH, Minister of Health and Sanitation, Sierra Leone
• Dr Bernice DAHN, Chief Medical Officer, Liberia
• Dr Marie-Paule KIENY, WHO Assistant Director General, Health Systems and Innovation
