In 2014, the Ebola virus caused an outbreak of unprecedented size in West Africa. The disease claimed over 10000 lives. For the first time ever, the virus led to diseased cases in developed economies, like Spain, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
HCSS has produced a report into the 2014 Ebola outbreak in West Africa. Based on close analysis of the events that befell Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea during 2014, Epidemics and Strategic Timing assesses the impact of variables on both efforts to prevent outbreaks of infection and facilitating intervention further down the line.
The report is part of the Strategic Monitor 2015, commissioned by the Dutch ministries of Foreign Affairs, Defense and Security and Justice.
