05 A Changing World | The Challenges Continue
2012: Mali crisis
2014: Ebola
We assisted 70 people and took hundreds of calls.
The outbreak of this lethal disease was a key
concern, especially for our clients based in
West Africa.
2012: Middle East Respiratory
Syndrome Coronavirus (MERs-CoV)
With many deaths occurring from a previously
unknown coronavirus, our information and advisory
services were again in action.
In each case we have offered a range of responses:
From keeping clients informed of unfolding events,
to providing on-the-ground medical and security
assistance, and building on each experience to
better prepare for future events.
2013: A new flu virus
The authorities in China announced that three people
had been infected with Avian Influenza A(H7N9) –
another deadly virus requiring our attention.
