Ebola in West Africa
biosocial and biomedical reflections
The West Africa ebola epidemic, which killed more than 11,000 people, is fading from urgency and memory. Technical biomedical lessons-learned are being applied in drug and vaccine development, for example in response to Zika. But biosocial issues that arose may not have been directly confronted, or sometimes even noticed, despite their overall importance in the eventual control and ending of the epidemic.
