The Ebola virus disease outbreak in west Africa in 2014—2016 showed how a lack of regional capacity to respond quickly and effectively to public health emergencies can result in devastating outcomes, that affect not only health but also security and social and economic development in the long term. In 2016 alone, Africa experienced many disease outbreaks, including yellow fever in Angola and the Democratic Republic of Congo, and cholera in South Sudan. It is widely acknowledged that public health systems across the continent need to be strengthened to prevent, detect, and respond to future infectious disease outbreaks rapidly and effectively.
