United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon addresses the 65th session of UNHCR in Geneva
United Nations (U.N.) Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon addresses the 65th session of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees' (UNHCR) Executive Committee meeting at the U.N. European headquarters in Geneva October 1, 2014. After a dire warning from the U.S. Centers for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC) that the virus could infect up to 1.4 million people, many health professionals and politicians are asking how the crisis got so badly out of hand. In the past 40 years, Ebola had killed just 1,500 people in sporadic outbreaks in Africa. Some aid workers and U.N. officials blame a lack of World Health Organization (WHO) leadership in the emergency response, particularly in the early stages when it would have been easier to contain. On several occasions, WHO officials played down the outbreak, they say. Stung by the criticism, WHO officials say the organisation was overstretched by a series of health care crises. They blame weak health care systems and uncooperative populations in poor African nations still reeling from civil war in the 1990s for allowing the outbreak to explode. Yet after a direct appeal from the leaders of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone - the worst affected countries - for the U.N. to do more on Ebola, Secretary-General Ban stepped in to create a special U.N. mission last week, effectively stripping WHO of its coordination role.
