 UN Chief Has Left for a Visit to Ebola-hit Countries
UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has left for a visit to Ebola-hit countries to take stock of international efforts to beat back the deadly ebola epidemic.

Ban will travel to Ghana, where the United Nations Ebola mission is headquartered; and Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Mali, where the UN is leading the response to the health crisis. He said, "I want to see the response for myself and show solidarity for those affected."

The visit follows sharp criticism from non-governmental organizations that UN agencies like the World Health Organization (WHO) were too slow to respond to the outbreak in Guinea. Ban said, "More aid is needed to fight Ebola but declared that the outbreak could be brought under control in 2015 if the international mobilization is kept up."
