Commerical Air Cancellations Quarantine Ebola Supplies
Supply Chain @ MIT
AUGUST 28, 2014
The supplies are needed by doctors in the fight against the deadly Ebola virus, and the holdup highlights a worrying gap in the humanitarian supply chain. The personal protective equipment (PPE) – shipped by our team of doctors and logisticians in Boston  – is destined for the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare in Liberia, which will then distribute supplies to locations at the front lines of the health crisis such as JFK Memorial Hospital in Monrovia.
