The commission, led by Vice President Jorge Arreaza, is due to work closely with the countries part of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America (ALBA) and the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC).
Earlier this week, heads of state and government and other representatives from the ALBA member countries gathered for an extraordinary summit in Havana to coordinate efforts to fight against the Ebola epidemic.
“A group of Venezuelan doctors wants to voluntarily join their colleagues in the African states struggling against the epidemic which has killed over 4,000 people,” Maduro said.
After a special training, some 20 Venezuelan doctors will head to West Africa to fight against the epidemic.
The commission also comprises foreign minister, defense minister, interior minister, air and sea transport minister, higher education minister, minister of science and technologies, and communications and information minister.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the death toll from Ebola virus nears 4,900, while the number of probable and suspected cases is around 10,000, with most of them detected in three West African countries - Liberia, Guinea and Sierra-Leone.
