World Food Programme: 'Without enough food people can't fight Ebola'

The World Food Programme says the Ebola crisis is having a serious impact on existing problems with food security in the hardest-hit countries.

Tulip Mazumdar visited a WFP food warehouse in the Guinean capital, Conakry, and spoke to WFP's country director Elisabeth Faure.

Ms Faure says people in the early stages of the disease have a better chance of survival if they are well-nourished but food shortages and stigmatisation mean they are finding it difficult to get enough to eat.
