Blog Post Outlines Debate Over Commentary Blaming IMF For Weakening Health Systems In West Africa

Humanosphere: Wonks disagree over whether IMF contributed to Ebola crisis
Humanosphere reporter Tom Murphy outlines recent debate among researchers and experts over a Lancet commentary “arguing the International Monetary Fund (IMF) helped to weaken health care in the West African countries struggling with Ebola.” He writes, “By the end, the debate found itself with three camps. One said the IMF is to blame, another says it is not, and a third saying yes and no. As with anything it appears the truth might be found in the middle of the extremes” (1/14).
