Selected extracts: 

 'The World Bank estimates that the two year socioeconomic effect of the current Ebola epidemic could reach $32.6 billion. If only a fraction of this amount had been spent on health system preparedness ... many of the more than 10,000 deaths reported might have been prevented [and] the benefits of a well prepared health system would extend to many other diseases, including HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria.'
