Japan's Response to the Ebola Outbreak in West Africa

June 14, 2016

The current Ebola outbreak might finally be ending, due partly to the support from the international community, including Japan. However, considering that some new cases are still being confirmed, Japan is determined to continue providing support with a view to achieving a zero case.

The current Ebola outbreak is in part attributed to the weak health systems of the affected countries. Given that, Japan will be contributing to the reconstruction of their health systems, which should serve to prevent a future outbreak of infectious diseases such as Ebola virus disease.
