African Union seeks India’s help

In a bid to fight the rapid spread of the Ebola virus disease, the African Union Support to Ebola Outbreak in West Africa, a team formed for emergency response on Ebola that is under the African Union Commission Social Affairs, has urged the Indian government to lend support with medical human resources.

The Indian government has had disasters, including natural and human made in many aspects and is very good at emergency preparedness and emergency response, hence, working with them in that aspect could really be supportive to tackle the issues, according to Mustapha Sidiki Kaloko, the commissioner for social affairs at the AUC. — IANS
