Development organisations fighting Ebola in Africa, such as Plan, have discovered obstacles in combating the disease from local communities that are resisting changes to their normal ways of living, customs and traditions, says Nigel Chapman.
The Ebola: From Emergency to Recovery conference, being held by the European Commission today (3 March), provides an important opportunity to plan for the long term recovery and resilience of affected countries, Health Commissioner Vytenis Andriukaitis told EURACTIV in an exclusive interview.
As the world struggles to deal with crises, there is a need to change the way we think about managing them, while building stronger bridges between humanitarian aid and development assistance, Commissioner Christos Stylianides told EURACTIV in an exclusive interview.
The need for fast, accurate and balanced information is always important. We value EURACTIV's good, independent journalism and support this initiative

EURACTIV plays a vital role in bringing Europe closer to its citizens. EURACTIV has long recognised that the story of Europe has to be told across the continent, and not just in Brussels. We need to support a truly European and informed debate.
