How effective will the Ebola summit be?


By Al Jazeera

A conference involving world leaders meeting in Brussels aims to mobilise efforts to put an end to the Ebola outbreak in Africa.

The gathering is organised by the European Union and seeks to sustain the international momentum in the fight against the virus. The conference also discusses ways to help the affected countries revive their economies.

West African leaders have said that a real recovery will require what they described as a Marshall Plan.

But could the money allocated during this conference be of any significant help? And what does it take to prevent a new Ebola outbreak?
