Hi everyone,

Though ebola has not been confirmed in Ghana, Columbia's emergency insurer has unfortunately decided that it would not be able to handle a medical emergency in West Africa because of the policy of restricting or canceling flights in affected countries.

This unfortunately means that the August 2014 monitoring trip has been canceled. Luckily all of the team was notified before arriving in Ghana, though some of us were on the first or second of a string of connected flights and are now preparing to return.
