Ebola The final in this year’s Global Health Advocacy seminars held with the Royal College of Physicians, this event will address the current Ebola crisis in West Africa and analyse the international community’s response to the outbreak.  What caused the delayed response by the WHO/UN, and what triggered individual state responses?  How might travel bans affect control efforts?  How can health professionals in the UK contribute to the global response, and will this outbreak affect future global health security responses?
