The UK welcomes the call to action from Médecins sans Frontières (MSF). The UK is taking a leading role in responding to the Ebola outbreak and is working with other donors, the Governments of affected countries, and partners on the ground to coordinate a more effective response to the crisis. UK officials are in regular contact with MSF to discuss improving the response to the outbreak. To date, over £25 million of British funding is supporting the global effort to contain this disease.
