Where did global health go wrong on Ebola?

The Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo has claimed over 1500 lives since 2018, despite the existence of an effective vaccine. Once again, the crisis has raised many critical questions relating to outbreak control, treatment responses, health system capacity, community trust, as well as governance and capacity at the national and global levels. In 2014, the Global Health Lab discussed the lessons to be learnt from the Ebola crisis in West Africa. Have these lessons been learnt? What makes this outbreak so different? Join us at the Global Health Lab to find out!
