Reacting to discussions on the Ebola response at the World Health Assembly, Oxfam’s senior health policy advisor Mohga Kamal-Yanni said: “Broken health systems need fixing and it takes more than words to make this happen. Now is the time for world leaders to take action if they hope to prevent another health crisis from devastating people’s lives."
