International Development Secretary Justine Greening said: “I am very pleased that Norway has agreed to provide up to 200 health workers and vital technical equipment for the UK’s Ebola Treatment Centre in Moyamba.

“This generous contribution will help to support the UK’s efforts to defeat Ebola in Sierra Leone and we look forward to working closely with the Norwegians in the coming weeks and months.
