Regional Response to the Ebola Hemorrhagic Fever Virus Outbreak (2014)
The Regional Response to the Ebola Hemorrhagic Fever Virus Outbreak is a committee organization formed to combat the Ebola Virus that has been confirmed in Guinea in March of 2014. The committee will be taking place in August-October of 2014 where the Ebola Virus has spread all over West Africa and to the U.S. and other parts of the world. This organization serves as the international governing body for infectious disease control of this Ebola outbreak. It is in charge of developing potential treatment, emergency responses, and authorized logistical decisions on an international level for monitoring the virus, interpreting the rules of the sport, and ridding the world of this disease in the present and the future. This committee has 191 member nations (associations), but not all members unfortunately will be able to attend due to the outbreak. Again, it is important to note that the events of this committee will be taking place in 2014. In this committee, delegates will work to formulate solutions in response to the rapidly-spreading Ebola Virus, starting with its origins in West Africa to the rest of the world. In the midst of their diligent work in presenting possible solutions to the outbreak, delegates will be updated with news alerts of the crisis and will have to quickly form and reform solutions to fit the respective crisis events. Furthermore, delegates will discuss and formulate a protocol and set of strict guidelines for any potential future outbreaks. This is not the first time Ebola has been spotted, and we surely cannot guarantee that it will not come again in the future, maybe as soon as 2016, 2018, or even 2019.
Topic A: Initial Local Emergency Responses to the Outbreak and Virus Control
