Ebola and the Social Determinants of Global Health
The 2014 Ebola Virus Disease epidemic is the largest in history, affecting the United States, Central and West Africa. The current Ebola outbreak is a dramatic example of how policy and social determinants of health intersect to impact population health worldwide. The Morehouse School of Medicine Transdisciplinary Collaborative Center (TCC) for Health Disparities Research, in collaboration with the Office of the President and Dean, kicked off its quarterly Health Policy to Practice Forum series with Ebola and the Social Determinants of Global Health. This dynamic forum featured informative presentations from preeminent transdisciplinary scholars and leaders, followed by a robust interactive dialogue. Recommendations for a global health security agenda addressing Ebola were also be discussed.
