IntraHealth Interview Highlights Lessons From 2014 West Africa Ebola Outbreak

IntraHealth International’s “VITAL”: Getting to Zero: Lessons on Ebola and Global Health Security
In this interview, Jessica Turner, Global Health Corps fellow at IntraHealth International, speaks with Oliver Johnson, coauthor of the book “Getting to Zero: A Doctor and a Diplomate on the Ebola Frontline,” about how lessons from the 2014 West Africa Ebola outbreak are informing the current outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Turner writes, “As an international community, we have a responsibility to learn these lessons, and urge investment in and support for frontline health workers around the world. We must remember the damaging impact that politics can have on response efforts and encourage all parties to prioritize health and human life over their own agendas” (11/20).
