Canada is joining the fight against Ebola in West Africa as the country is reportedly contributing protective medical gear, worth $2.5 million (408,000,065.28), to the cause.

The nation’s Health Minister, Rona Ambrose, revealed this on Monday, September 15, 2014, CBC News reports.

Canada previously offered to donate 1000 doses of its experimental Ebola vaccine to help in the treatment of Ebola in West Africa after the World Health Organization (WHO) deemed such measures ethical.

The minister said that the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) would be given to WHO as part of efforts to help combat the disease.

Ambrose added:

“We will continue to explore ways for Canada to make a meaningful contribution to the global response,”

This comes as the US announced that it would send 3000 troops to Liberia, as well as medical supplies, to contain and help curb the spread of Ebola.
