The current outbreak of Ebola in West Africa constitutes the largest and most complex to date. Declared a public health emergency of international concern by WHO, the outbreak of a disease with no known treatment or vaccination is proving difficult to contain given the already fragile and under-resourced health systems in the affected areas.
In an effort to support the vital work being done, all related content from The Lancet family of journals is now freely accessible on our online Ebola Resource Centre. If you are working in an area affected by Ebola or have expertise in this field of medicine, we encourage you to share your front-line experiences by posting comments on the Resource Centre homepage.
