Ebola, one year later

One year ago the largest Ebola outbreak began in March of 2014 the public Health authorities of Guinea reported an outbreak of Ebola.  Now, in April 2015, more than 25,000 suspected cases of Ebola have occurred.  This outbreak, while centered in Western Africa, has touched the lives of many around the world.  Unfortunately, case counts are still rising and people are still dying from the disease.

In Sierra Leone a vaccine trial has started with the hopes that this tool will be what is needed to stop this devastating outbreak.

MSF International and other NGO groups have been fighting this outbreak from the beginning.  Below, you can see some media of this last year fighting Ebola.
