Considerations from previous outbreaks of Ebola, Cholera, Rift Valley Fever, Influenza and SARS.
This collection collates reports, case studies and tools from the ‘Social Science in Epidemics’ series. In this series, different aspects of past disease outbreaks are reviewed in order to identify social science ‘entry points’ for emergency interventions and preparedness activities.
The case studies compile successful examples of integration of social science knowledge into operational responses.
The collection also includes a series of tools that enable social scientists and practitioners to identify key considerations from a social science perspective when designing or implementing epidemic response activities in a particular context.
