A testament of Despair

Christian Sundberg was working in Sierra Leone when the worst EBOLA epidemic in human history began. His primary mission was to work as a senior pediatrician in a pediatric emergency hospital outside the second largest city in the country. Unexpectedly the EBOLA epidemic began just a week after he arrived, reaping victim after victim.
Christian Sundberg is a MD PhD, Associate Professor and senior scientist at Uppsala University and has been an active writer in the media concerning the horrific EBOLA epidemic. The lecture will discuss his experiences working working in the chaos that was the first outbreak, how they coped. He will also talk about how they tried to keep the hospital up and running during the rapidly evolving epidemic, and what it was like to work in the early, rudimentary as well as, over time, the more modern EBOLA treatment centers.
