Call for Action – Fight Ebola NOW!

Africa Action joins US-Africa Network in calling for quick and deep action to fight the spread of Ebola. You can take action now.

US-Africa Network … “We all must respond to Ebola” … September 19, 2014

“More than 2,400 people have been killed in the largest Ebola outbreak in history. It is spreading fast USAn logoand threatening the lives of thousands more, including the medical staff and community health workers who are on the front lines. The call for scaled-up international action is growing louder. The U.S. and other governments are stepping up their response, and prominent philanthropists have announced large contributions. But the virus is still outpacing the response.

The US-Africa Network, whose mission is to facilitate communication and solidarity among people and groups in the United States, on the African continent, and in the African diaspora, is calling for an urgent response from all who care about Africa and global health.

There are several ways to take action now.”
