West African leaders name Togo's president to lead Ebola response

Pres Faure Gnassingbe

West African leaders on Thursday appointed Togolese President Faure Gnassingbe to supervise the region's efforts to contain the deadly Ebola epidemic, which has killed nearly 5,000 people, mostly in the region.

The leaders who gathered in the Ghanaian capital, Accra, called for accelerated efforts to make vaccines available against the disease, which has infected some 13,567 people in eight countries.

Organizations should prioritize the provision of vaccines at subsidized prices to the affected countries, as well as others, they said in a communique after reviewing the impact of the disease in the region.

The Accra meeting is the third called by the Economic Community Of West African States (ECOWAS) this year to discuss how to tackle Ebola
