The Lancet To Focus On Ebola’s Lessons, Global Health Security In Upcoming Issues

The Lancet: 1 year on — lessons from the Ebola outbreak for WHO
Editorial Board

“This week has seen what is likely to be the beginning of an onslaught of criticism leveled against WHO for its handling of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. … This year will see at least three further international, independent investigations into WHO’s conduct in the Ebola response. Regrettably, it is likely that WHO’s reputation is going to suffer more wounds in the coming months. The Lancet’s focus will be to try and draw larger lessons from the Ebola outbreak. In early May, we will be publishing a collection of essays on global health security, together with one of the first analyses of the deeper consequences of Ebola” (3/28).
