Meeting: Ebola and Development

A meeting Ebola and Development: The reality of causes and consequences of Ebola in West Africa takes place in Copenhagen on Wednesday May 27, at 17.00-21.00. The meeting will discuss why Ebola attracted such international attention, when the number of death after all is relatively small compared, e.g., to the about 6,500 children dying every day from vaccine preventable diseases? The meeting will also talk about the lessons learned from the outbreak and how future threats from Ebola across the complex urban and rural landscapes that now define modern Africa be managed?

Global Health Minders chairman Morten Sodemann is one of the speakers at the event. He will contextualize the recent Ebola outbreak within the overall public health picture in Africa, the international health regulations, and the social determinants of the disease

Seminar: Ebola – lessons learned and future perspectives

For almost a year the international community has been engaged in the fight against Ebola in West Africa. Various old and new actors from Denmark are involved in the mission. The insurmountable and complex scope of the epidemic calls for a massive and innovative response. The time is now right to discuss successes, challenges, the multiactor approach and a lot of other relevant questions that have evolved during the past year.

The Danish Network for Health and Development has invited the most important actors that have been involved in the Ebola response to create a forum where relevant knowledge can be shared amongst actors and stakeholders. Two main questions will be in focus throughout the seminar:

  • What has led to the current state of the response to the Ebola epidemic in West Africa and thoughts/plans on further steps to stop the epidemic?
  • What are lessons learned to prepare for and respond to future large-scale and sustained outbreaks and emergencies?

The seminar takes place on 6 March 2015 at the Islands Brygge Kulturhus.
