The BBC’s Global Health Reporter Tulip Mazumdar has been reporting on the Ebola crisis since it first began and has just returned from her second trip to West Africa.
The global famine warning system is predicting a major food crisis if the Ebola outbreak continues to grow exponentially over the coming months, and the United Nations still hasn't reached over 750,000 people in need of food in West Africa as prices spiral and farms are abandoned.
On the eve of World Food Day on Thursday, U.N agencies and non-governmental organizations are scrambling to scale up efforts to avert widespread hunger.
"The world is mobilizing and we need to reach the smallest villages in the most remote locations," Denise Brown, the U.N. World Food Program's regional director for West Africa, said in a statement Wednesday.
The global death toll is now above 4,000 with countries such Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone most affected by the hemorrhagic fever.
