“Ebola: The Making of an Epidemic” was the title of my year-long senior essay/thesis at Yale University in 1996.  This research additionally included extensive interviews with those who combatted the disease (i.e. Dr. Donald Francis, a member of the World Health Organization four man team sent in 1976 to the Sudan), heads of news organizations, government leaders, and journalists among them.  My premise was utilizing Ebola as a case study to demonstrate how a story that could sell is the requisite catalyst for the governmental/political, public health and media machines to work in unison.  As I review it now, I am astonished by its current relevance and marvel at the fact that since that time 99.9% of it reveals history repeating itself as this premonition of the shrinking Global Village is playing out in real time today.  The issues have not changed. This book will place the events currently transpiring into historical context. It is an important story to tell to underscore how a shift in our value system and funding practices could serve to prevent future outbreaks.
