Matshidiso Moeti on Lessons Learned

When Matshidiso Moeti became the first woman to lead WHO’s Regional Office for Africa, the agency was taking heat for its handling of West Africa’s Ebola outbreak—and the tiny public health emergency team was “probably not even eight people.”
Now, her organization has put lessons learned from the 2014 Ebola outbreak to work, she said at last week’s Africa Health Forum in Cape Verde—with a much stronger base of local experts.
With the escalating Ebola outbreak underway in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, she says putting local people at the center of disease control efforts is key.
