Newsletter N° 1, 26 November 2014

The current Ebola outbreak in West Africa is the first health issue that has been declared "a global security threat" by the UN. It is a public health crisis and a complex emergency requiring extraordinary emergency measures to contain it and to save as many lives as possible. The Ebola outbreak has also highlighted the crucial role that faith communities can play as part of a multi-sectorial response to address the crisis. This newsletter aims to keep you informed of that starting with stories from the WCC consultation, A Collaborative Response to the Ebola Crisis at Regional and Level held in Nairobi, Kenya from 24-26 November.
