Ebola in West Africa. Before, now and then

The Ebola outbreak in West Africa almost shattered the socio-economic fabric of affected countries and revealed the state of despair and abandonment of the health care system in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea Conakry. What lessons have Africa and the international community learned from the current EVD outbreak in West Africa? How to prevent future outbreaks? This supplement compiles the contribution of front line responders to the Ebola outbreak and provides an insight on the challenges African governments and the global health community will have to address to improve the outbreak response capacities of the continent.
