Ban: Ebola efforts won't end in 2014
Efforts to end the Ebola outbreak in West Africa will continue well into 2015, with Mali the latest country of concern, said Ban Ki-moon, United Nations secretary-general. "Our end game is not near. We must get to zero cases. Ebola is not a disease where you can leave a few cases and say you've done enough," Ban argued. BBC (11/21), Devex.com (free registration) (11/24), Reuters (11/23)

"We've always been concerned about the threat that our leaders will trade women's rights away for peace," says Sara Surkhabi, an Afghan senator. "We need to fight for our rights or we'll lose all the advances we've won." The New York Times (tiered subscription model) (11/24), The Associated Press (11/24)
