Video: The Institutional Fight against the Pandemic: How Ebola Exposed the Weaknesses in Global Health Governances

Understanding the shortcomings of multilateral responses to the Ebola outbreak in West Africa.

How did the Ebola virus disease reveal the institutional communication gap in health responses, and what lessons can we take into future pandemics?

In this podcast, Dr. Obinna Franklin Ifediora, a doctoral candidate at the School of Political Science and International Studies, University of Queensland, discusses how the Ebola outbreak in West Africa in 2014 exposed the weaknesses of existing institutional frameworks at national, regional, and global levels. How did the multilateral responses fall short? Dr. Ifediora speaks based on his paper “West Africa’s Ebola Pandemic: Toward Effective Multilateral Responses to Health Crises”, published in Brill’s Global Governance.
