New York - Former US President Bill Clinton made an impassioned appeal for modern health care in the Ebola-stricken countries of West Africa and told The Associated Press afterward that he hoped to keep working for the foundation he launched regardless of what happens politically with his wife, Hillary.

Clinton, whose wife is the leading Democratic presidential contender, called the Ebola epidemic in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea "a man-made disaster" caused by their poor health facilities.

He told a UN conference on Thursday that he had visited Liberia earlier in May, where his foundation has worked during the Ebola crisis.
