Khan, 39, who also served part-time as Medical Officer for AIDS Healthcare Foundation's Sierra Leone Country Program, succumbed to the disease Tuesday after being quarantined and cared for by medical providers from Médecins Sans Frontières at the isolation unit in the Kailahun District in Eastern Sierra Leone for several days.

Since then, the Government of Sierra Leone has declared Khan a national hero. In an official statement released earlier this week, the Government of Sierra Leone and His Excellency, the President Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma, the President of Sierra Leone, have proclaimed,

"Dr. Khan saved the lives of more than 100 of his patients before succumbing to the disease himself. It is said that there is no greater sacrifice than giving one's life for their country. His Excellency has therefore declared Dr. Khan a National Hero and the new viral hemorrhagic fever centre in Kenema will be named after him."
