Robinson, senior coordinator for World Vision International’s Ebola response leadership team, examine “the relationship between religion and health by highlighting the influences of religion on the response to the 2014 to 2016 Ebola outbreak and the global HIV epidemic.” The authors describe lessons learned from both responses to “better inform collaboration with religious actors” (1/24).
