The Ebola Crisis. An Overview


Seminar paper from the year 2016 in the subject Medicine - History, grade: A, , course: Independent Research (709), language: English, abstract: This research paper explains what the Ebola Virus Diseases (EVD) is about and accounts of its history, centering on policy and administrative measures to tackle the EVD. In elucidating details of the EVD the research paper narrates aspects of when the virus was incepted in history and the origins of the virus. It also assesses controversies behind the origin of the virus and gives a conclusion that wild animals of unspecified type are the origin. Its origin is unspecified given the fact that various wild animals are considered to be the root causes either as a contact or as food resources. Added, the paper details how the Ebola Virus Diseases of 2014 expanded beyond geographical barriers and affected huge numbers of people breaking the overall records in history and surpassing the overall past occurrences together in magnitude and scope. The plague with such magnitude has shattered the capacity of Western African countries to contain it and put into question the ability of the world health organization (WHO) and the global community. Be that as it may, the collective participation of the global community has brought the plague into a defeat. The plague has been contained with the diverse role played by the international community, INGOs, WHO, the UN and the host West African countries of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone have used different administrative and policy mechanisms to contain the Ebola Virus Disease of the 2014. The 2014 Ebola Crisis could not have been contained without those administrative and policy addressees that the host countries have designed and implemented. The UN, WHO, and INGOs have also collaborated in containing the plagues with diverse administrative and policy issues besides providing resources to avert the farther expansion of the plague and its huge impact on security in its border term among which failure of investing on health facilities in West Africa was unprecedented. The research has finally drawn a recommendation and a conclusion.
