Understanding West Africas Ebola Epidemic
From 2013 to 2015, over 11,000 people across West Africa lost theirlives to the deadliest outbreak of the Ebola virus in history. Crucially, thisepidemic marked the first time the virus was able to spread beyond ruralareas to major cities, overturning conventionalassumptions about its epidemiology.With backgrounds ranging from development to disease control, thecontributors to this volume - some of them based in countries affected by the Ebola epidemic - consider the underlying factors that shaped this unprecedented outbreak. While championing the heroicefforts of local communities and aid workers in halting thespread of the disease, the contributors also reveal deep structural problems inboth the countries and humanitarian agencies involved, which hampered the efforts to contain the epidemic. Alarmingly,they show that little has been learned from these events, with health provision remaining underfunded and poorly equipped todeal with future outbreaks. Such issues, they argue, reflect the widerchallenges we face in tackling epidemic disease in an increasinglyinterconnected world.
