Ypin Panel Discussion: Africa After Ebola says
In late 2013, a few isolated cases of a deadly disease in the West-African country of Guinea quickly evolved into a terrifying epidemic threatening thousands of lives. Ebola became a global sensation for almost three years, leaving a death toll of nearly 11,500 in its wake. And then . . . what?

To the average citizen, many questions still remain about what became of the outbreak. What happened, and what will happen again if another outbreak occurs? Were sustainable health systems established during the crises and can they be maintained? What’s next for global health across the continent?

Join us for a panel discussion addressing these answers and more on May 23rd, 2017 at 6:30PM at Northeastern University.
