I have been following this Ebola response community and know that most posts are centered around primary issues experienced by medical personal. That said, stopping the spread of Ebola, or other serious epidemics in the future, as quickly as possible, is crucial. I am working with a team at Yegii to explore solutions to the world's Ebola problem. The aim is to supplement the ongoing thinking in (inter) governmental actors and specific NGOs with an alternative, independent, consulting style perspective. This is an open innovation challenge, using a broad array of spare capacity brainpower. The tracking of vaccine progress, quarantine efforts, and critique of international financial support are all topics being discussed. Current submissions include the attached link to an op-ed in Fortune detailing a macro perspective on the current Ebola outbreak.
Findings will be public and will be handed over to the WHO, US, EU and relevant African governments, and will be sent to major pharma players, startups, and NGOs. If you are interested in learning more, please see the attached link titled "Eradicating Ebola in 100 Days".
