CSIS Expert Discusses Ebola In DRC, Challenges To Controlling Outbreak

Center for Strategic & International Studies: The Ebola Virus Is Winning in Eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo
In this commentary, J. Stephen Morrison, senior vice president of CSIS and director of the CSIS Global Health Policy Center, writes, “Ebola in eastern DRC is not going away anytime soon. Nor are the hard barriers to access rooted in insecurity and chaos and the companion barriers linked to DRC’s governance, major power indifference, an excess burden of health security challenges, and weak management.” Morrison outlines three areas for “immediate action,” including efforts to address insecurity, utilize political leadership, and increase U.S. government involvement (9/12).
