The current Ebola epidemic in West Africa is unprecedented in its scope and devastating effects. The health systems of Liberia, Guinea, and Sierra Leona were not adequate to the task of containing the outbreak; while the international community responded slowly at first, it has accelerated its contributions and helped these countries slow the rate of new infections. Management Sciences for Health (MSH) commends the US government for the key role it has already played. The US continues to be a critical source of financing, expertise and other resources.
