First state whether you agree with the assessment that the response to Zika was an overreaction and Ebola an underreaction and on what grounds or if you disagree with that assessment, explain why.
Next, the readings this week raise different explanations for the lackluster response to both epidemics. Select one of the following factors identified in the readings and comment on why you think that factor most explains this lackluster response (if you agree it was lackluster):
Internal politics that inhibited organizational response (within the WHO, US or within countries)- e.g., factors emphasized in Moon (2015), Youde (2015), Busby (2015), Greer (2016), Gostin et al (2016), Wilkinson et al (2017).
Public opinion/Bias/Disease specific characteristics (i.e., the types of concerns evinced by each disease)- e.g., factors discussed in Kapiriri & Ross (2018), Price-Smith & Porreca (2016), Dionne & Seay (2015).
Cultural causes within countries– lack of public understanding of the diseases/ignorance- e.g., Abramowitz et al (2015), Smallman (2017)
