Joint Statement: Ebola Crisis could set progress in Liberia, Guinea, and Sierra Leone back a decade.

As the UN Security Council convenes for an emergency meeting in New York, on 18 September 2014,  to address a world health emergency, the Ebola crisis continues to devastate communities in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone.  Without concerted and immediate international action to tackle this crisis, the outbreak could see these countries' hard-fought for progress set back years, bringing the health care system to its knees and, for Liberia and Sierra Leone, back to levels not seen since the end of their respective civil wars.
