The response to the Ebola outbreak in West Africa has been a concerted effort between the UN and civil society, ensuring that help is "reaching the right people, in the right areas, in a timely fashion."

That’s according to Rosalia Gitau from the UN humanitarian affairs office, OCHA, who's based in Guinea.

Though this sounds like an easy feat, Ms Gitau says she has seen the challenges of supply chains which are not fully reliable and poor infrastructure which can impede the delivery of services.

Siobhán Garside asked her for an update on the humanitarian response to Ebola in Guinea.
