Army medics trained at Catterick Garrison in North Yorkshire have left the country to join British efforts in fighting the Ebola outbreak.
They will man the Ebola Training Academy in Sierra Leone, which will supply five treatment centres currently being built by the UK.
International Development Secretary Justine Greening said it was vitally important for the UK to support countries in western Africa to defeat Ebola to prevent further loss of life and ensure it does not spread into the UK.
Speaking as she set off for Sierra Leone with around 100 RAF medics being sent to build a training academy and field hospital she said:
"If we don't combat Ebola it will take many more lives, but also it can pose a risk to the UK".
