Thanks for your comment. The situation in Sierra Leone is challenging as WHO has reported a total of 422 confirmed Ebola cases, and 143 people are known to have died from the disease. Efforts to strengthen the coordination of the response are being made, with the goal of having a concerted response across the Government. An Emergency Operations Center has now been established led by the Minister for Health and Sanitation. The UN agencies are also helping to develop a National Ebola Operational Plan and efforts are being made to mobilize donor support for priority needs.

Robust effort is required to support social mobilization and for contact tracing, as well as for clinical management of cases.
