Drivers for occasional spillover event of Ebola virus

A EFSA report shows that “understanding the drivers of Ebola virus spillover in West Africa requires a broad, multi-disciplinary perspective”. Experts identified the drivers through a literature review, grouped them according to social, technological, environmental, economic, and political categories and identified and visualised links. Their analysis is a nice example of the application of a One Health approach to understanding disease emergence.
