Thinking after fighting against 2014 Ebola epidemic in Liberia

The outbreak of Ebola virus disease in West Africa in 2014 has greatly destroyed the public health system of the three countries. And it is still early to see an end to its influence on the society, public health and medical service in the area although the outbreak is gradually under control. More thinking from the epidemiology, translational medicine, and sociology aspects of the outbreak will help to formulate the "go global strategies" of PLA and our medical service.
