Ebola outbreak in West Africa - Oxfam's response

Oxfam has reached over 1.4 million people in Ebola affected countries since the start of our response in May 2014. Today, the Ebola outbreak is easing—but it is not over. We are working with partners and communities to track down cases and prevent new hotspots from emerging. We can not stop fighting the Ebola outbreak until we get to zero cases in West Africa.
