Ebola: an open letter to European governments

In an open letter published in The Lancet, leading health experts urge European governments to 'mobilise all possible resources’ to assist West Africans in controlling the Ebola epidemic. The letter is signed by 44 prominent academics, clinicians, and health professionals from 15 European countries. They call for European countries to take specific measures, including allowing health professionals to volunteer for temporary leave to assist with the crisis, and incentivising private companies to reverse travel restrictions to affected regions.
