Already uh eu and member states have contributed half a billion euros in support of trying to protect people, and, of course, you will know that many individual member states are working hard in different countries, especially in west africa, to support the populations providing medical support by way of equipment and staff. But as ever, we want to see what more can be done.
Firstly, on ebola: we do need this billion euro fund. There is a major health crisis here. We've got a very short window to get on top of it and prevent the uncontrollable spread of this disease. This is a very worthwhile investment and that money would be spent on providing additional beds and isolation facilities in country, because the only way we're going to stop the spread of the disease is to make sure that people are isolated and treated early.
It's very crucial that we step up our efforts for the the netherlands. We have already offered a frigate that will leave very quickly also. We have stepped up our humanitarian aid. I think it's very important that we have an increase in people who can go there in a way that is responsible because we have to step up it's it's a very serious.
Crisis, it's important that we do share and that we coordinate in the circumstances. It's unlikely that ireland will be able to provide all of the answers and that's why we're looking for a coordinated approach this afternoon with a view towards ensuring uh that each and every member state of the eu engages on what is a dreadful crisis in west.
One of the common challenge I would see, but now it's not not just problem with the health, but also kind of threat to our international security and also peace which, which was stated in one of the un resolutions. So we as the members of young security council also sharing this view, so we should accumulate all possible resources. Expertise maybe establish some task force now, will be good opportunity to coordinate with others how we can contribute, also in coordination, definitely with what was done with by united nations by world health organization.
