List Of 37 Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) Working On The Ebola crisis

The unprecedented spread of the Ebola virus disease (EVD) across West Africa has been fast and deadly, cases and deaths continue to surge.

A few weeks back the World Health Organization (WHO) has characterized the speed and extent of the outbreak as unprecedented.

The confusion and lack of coordination: The international aid group Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) has characterized international efforts to tackle the crisis as “dangerously inadequate.

International support has been underwhelming; and huge questions remain about who is leading the global response?

This week, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation announced it will donate $50 million to help fight the Ebola outbreak in West Africa.

The foundation says the money will be used to enable international aid organizations and national governments “to purchase badly needed supplies and scale up emergency operations in affected countries.”

For those interested, the US Agency for International Development has put together a list of 37 non-governmental organizations that are working on the Ebola crisis.
