The travellers dance: how Ebola prevention measures affect day to day life

Gonzalez, T. (2015). The travellers dance: how Ebola prevention measures affect day to day life. Intervention, 13(1), 57-60.

While the international community remains concerned and focused on the potential spread of Ebola out of Africa, the author states that they also frequently ignore the deep psychological pain that the measures implemented to combat the disease are causing within impacted communities, as do the national authorities. She provides a snapshot of this moment in the crisis and highlights the painful impacts, dehumanising measures and makes a plea for international organisations to do more to be mindful of this pain.
