Heads of State to hold emergency meeting in Accra over Ebola

The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) is likely to hold an emergency meeting involving Heads of State over Ebola in Accra.

This was disclosed by President John Dramani Mahama on Friday, August 22 when he welcomed the Executive Director of the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV and AIDS (UNAIDS) to the Flagstaff House, Kanda.

Michel Sidibe is in Ghana to inspect work done so far on setting up a production hub of anti-retroviral drugs in Ghana.

President Mahama, who is also Chairman of ECOWAS’ highest decision-making body, used the opportunity to brief Mr Sidibe. A meeting of the West African Health Organisation will be held next Tuesday over the deadly Ebola virus.
