Haitian volunteers banned from going to African countries to fight Ebola

The Haitian Government has made it clear that no Haitian is allowed to leave the country and go to any of the African countries currently hit by the ibola outbreak to help with treatment.


The statement was released by Haiti Ministers of Health, together with Minister of Interior and Defense. It stated that the Ministers forbade any agency, including the U.N. Mission for Ebola Emergency Response (UNMEER), from recruiting haitian volunteers for that purpose.

The Minister of Defense, Lener Renauld, also indicated that it's a question of public health and security to avoid any Ebola epidemic crisis from reaching Haiti.
