I thank the President of the Economic and Social Council for convening this important and timely meeting.
Global solidarity has brought us a long way in addressing Ebola.
And, I join the President of ECOSOC in expressing my deepest condolences and sympathies to the affected people and governments of those countries.
With an even greater collective push we can end the outbreak, help the affected societies build back stronger, and safeguard our world against future risks.
Ebola has taken a devastating humanitarian toll in West Africa.
