Abstract

In Ebola: How A People’s Science Helped End an Epidemic, Paul Richards draws on his firsthand experience in Sierra Leone of the recent Ebola outbreak to outline the vital role played by a ‘people’s science’ grounded in the co-production of knowledge between responders and communities. Despite an occasionally meandering narrative, this book is filled with fascinating insights and rich in practical examples that should inspire deep reflection on how to better respond to future crises, writes Anita Makri.
