Following the emergency meeting of West African health ministers in Accra, Ghana, they have agreed to establish a fund of $10 million to support research into the Ebola virus, which is currently ravaging parts of the sub region.

They also agreed to strengthen regional communication synergy in order to contain the epidemic.

The ministers while adopting a common inter-country strategy canvassed an accelerated response to Ebola outbreak in Africa.

These strategies they agreed should highlight regional, sub-regional and national leadership, coordinated action by all stakeholders, enhanced cross-border collaboration and participation of communities.

The affected countries were also urged to work and share experience with other countries that have previously managed Ebola in the spirit of South to South collaboration.

The hemorrhaging killer virus has killed more than 400 in West Africa nations including Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea.
