The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has pledged 5.7 million dollars towards a programme to increase production of experimental Ebola treatments in Guinea and other affected countries.

The programme will focus on treatments derived from the blood of survivors.

The foundation also said the grant would be used to evaluate new experimental drugs.

More than 5,000 people have died in the current Ebola outbreak - almost all of them in West Africa.
