UNV support in West Africa continues
The current Ebola outbreak is the most severe to date, and has been declared an international emergency by the World Health Organization (WHO).

United Nations agencies and structures on the ground are working closely with the WHO, which is coordinating the medical response to the disease. The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme and the UN Volunteers serving with the agencies and missions in the affected countries are actively supporting and participating in these United Nations efforts.
