Direct Relief – with financial support from Abbott Fund, AbbVie Foundation, Baxter International, BD, Covidien, Sappo Hill, and Pfizer – has already shipped more than 445,000 gloves, 20,000 gowns, 23,500 masks, 185,000 tabs of antibiotics, and 2,000 bars of soap to local clinics in Liberia and Sierra Leone – countries that comprise more than 70 percent of Ebola cases in the region.

"The Direct Relief shipment is absolutely critical, as we are almost out of our existing stock of gloves and gowns," said Raphael Frankfurter, executive director of the Wellbody Alliance – the only health facility in Sierra Leone's Kono district that provides comprehensive clinical and community-based care on an ongoing basis.

In addition to local health facilities such as Wellbody Alliance and Last Mile Health, Direct Relief is coordinating with the World Health Organization Emergency Operations Center,
