Ebola is a complex global crisis. The international response to the Ebola outbreak in Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone has been extraordinary, and real progress is being made. But the outbreak is evolving unevenly, and the response must be nimble, flexible and sustained. As the United Nations and the international community step up efforts to respond to the Ebola outbreak, the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) Special Meeting will provide in depth discussion on the economic and social impact of Ebola on the affected countries, the region and the rest of the world and possible solutions to strengthen the capacity of the affected countries to deal with future health shocks.
Opening: President of ECOSOC, the President of the General Assembly and the United Nations Secretary-General
♦ Messages from the affected countries
♦ Keynote addresses by Secretary-General’s Special Envoy on Ebola and Director-General of World Health Organization (WHO)
Followed by a panel discussion:
♦ Moderated by Dr. Paul Farmer, Co-Founder of Partners in Health and Special Adviser to the Secretary-General on Community Based Medicine and Lessons from Haiti
♦ High-level Representatives from the African Union Commission, the United Nations system, the World Bank, Open Society Foundation, Center for Global Development and Ebola Private Sector Mobilization Group
