Saving Lives Now from Ebola in Africa

James G. Hodge, Hannah Kaye Fleming

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


In his letter, Peace is a better focus than Ebola in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), David M. Brett-Major provides a vital reminder of the tragic undercurrent of violence and political instability dominating African regions currently impacted by the second worst Ebola outbreak in modern history. He characterizes health-centric activities as a common mistake to remedy the vicious cycle of endemic violence and disease outbreaks in DRC and surrounding areas. What is truly needed is a concerted peace and development process, with health as a voice in a chorus-not alone.
