‘Science Speaks’ Discusses Article On Sexual Transmission Of Ebola, Lessons From HIV Response

Center for Global Health Policy’s “Science Speaks”: Comprehensive health responses and lessons from HIV can guide efforts to confront sexual transmission of Ebola

Antigone Barton, senior writer and editor of “Science Speaks,” discusses a recent article in Clinical Infectious Diseases, “Confronting Ebola as a Sexually Transmitted Infection,” and says that the discovery that Ebola could be sexually transmitted “has changed the definition, the timing and the demands of controlling an outbreak, and of responding to the needs left in its wake.” Barton writes that the article notes that some lessons learned from HIV research can be applied to Ebola (3/14).
