Giving Compass' Take:
• In this TED Talk, a doctor named Soka Moses details the 2014 Ebola crisis in Liberia, discussing the chaos and fear that reigned as thousands died, as well as the trauma that persists among survivors.
• Moses' story brings up important issues when it comes to dealing with infectious diseases: Developing countries often don't have the resources to contain an outbreak. What can nonprofits in this sector do to help them?
• After you watch this video, be sure to read up on what we're doing to prevent a pandemic and ensure global health security.
In 2014, as a newly trained physician, Soka Moses took on one of the toughest jobs in the world: treating highly contagious patients at the height of Liberia's Ebola outbreak. In this intense, emotional talk, he details what he saw on the frontlines of the crisis — and reveals the challenges and stigma that thousands of survivors still face.
