The ability of some poor, resource-limited, developing countries in sub-Saharan Africa to efficiently handle the Ebola epidemic within their shores provides some lessons learned for the global health community. Among others, the 2014 EVD epidemic teaches us that it is time to put the “P” back in public and population health around the world.

Ebola virus must not be called the disease of the poor and developing world.
