Since the August 1, 2014 emergency meeting of Leaders of the Mano River Union in Conakry, Guinea, progress against the deadly Ebola virus disease has been very tremendous. Apparently, the meeting from which evolved a practical and holistic action plan may have just been a stimulus for such progress in the battle against the disease that has claimed more than 700 lives in West Africa, especially in Guinea, Liberian and Sierra Leone.
