Sustainable Development Goals: 3, 4
- SDG 3 - Good Health and Well-Being
- SDG 4 - Quality Education
What can community perspectives bring to Ebola virus disease preparedness in Uganda's border districts? Unequal social structures and structural violence shape community responses. These pre-existing inequalities can be exacerbated by health crises. Participatory research on the Ebola epidemic and response in Uganda reveals the importance of understanding the influence of community and social inequalities and outlines essential principles for shaping policy responses to other epidemics.
