Time magazine has named "Ebola Fighters" as its Person of the Year for their "tireless acts of courage and mercy."

"Ebola is a war, and a warning," Time editor Nancy Gibbs writes in announcing the magazine's choice for most influential newsmaker of 2014. "The global health system is nowhere close to strong enough to keep us safe from infectious disease, and 'us' means everyone, not just those in faraway places where this is one threat among many that claim lives every day. The rest of the world can sleep at night because a group of men and women are willing to stand and fight."
