The West African Ebola epidemic caused tens of thousands of deaths, many of them avoidable. Global governance for health during the epidemic has been deeply criticized for the delays, lack of coordination, and insufficient resources. It has also highlighted the deep problems caused by fragile health systems. This lecture will search for lessons learned from Ebola, as well as the appropriate roles for international organizations. Ebola has transformed the way the international community thinks about epidemic diseases. What will the global future look like, particularly for the World Health Organization?
