Abstract

Ebola is one of the most deadly infectious diseases known to man. It is a viral disease which is transmitted from animal to man (zoonotic) . Ebola as a zoonotic disease for which no cure has been found, requires intensive efforts at prevention and control. Health inequalities due to socio-cultural factors coupled with geographical factors have perpetuated the disease among humans. This needs to be addressed to stem the re-emergence and spread of Ebola in West Africa and indeed in the world at large.
