Ebola crisis: 'Too slow' WHO promises reforms
The World Health Organization (WHO) has set out plans for reform, admitting that it was too slow to respond to the deadly Ebola outbreak in West Africa.
..."The world, including WHO, was too slow to see what was unfolding before us. Ebola is a tragedy that has taught the world, including WHO, many lessons about how to prevent similar events in the future."
...Dr Chan said that although disease outbreaks would continue to deliver shocks, "never again should the world be caught by surprise, unprepared".
The reforms announced included a "dedicated contingency fund to support rapid responses to outbreaks and emergencies".
...Dr Chan said the worst-case scenario had been avoided, but warned: "We must maintain the momentum and guard against complacency and donor fatigue."
WHO figures show 21,724 reported cases of Ebola in the outbreak , with 8,641 deaths.
