World on the verge of an effective Ebola vaccine

Preliminary results from Guinea show that a new vaccine is highly effective against Ebola, and trials of the VSV-EBOV vaccine should continue. "This is an extremely promising development," said Dr Margaret Chan, WHO Director-General. "The credit goes to the Guinean Government, the people living in the communities and our partners in this project. An effective vaccine will be another very important tool for both current and future Ebola outbreaks."
