John Campbell, Ralph Bunche senior fellow for Africa Policy Studies at CFR, discusses the challenge of distrust in efforts to address Ebola in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, writing, “The Ebola vaccine is proving highly effective, but distrust of health workers, skepticism of the disease’s existence or provenance, and attacks on medical facilities are stymying progress. … Ebola is a governance issue as well as a medical one” (5/3).
