UK health charity to run Ebola treatment centre in Sierra Leone

Doctors of the World UK is to run a 100-bed Ebola treatment centre in Sierra Leone that’s being custom-built in a town called Moyamba.

The centre, run with Spanish counterparts Médicos del Mundo in partnership with Sierra Leone’s Ministry of Health, will be staffed by NHS doctors and nurses as well as clinicians from Norway.

The project is being led by Chris Bulstrode, emeritus professor at Oxford University and Professor John Wright, a clinical epidemiologist and director of the Bradford Institute for Health Research.
