Abstract

Two global health crises, HIV/AIDS and Ebola, have drawn legal and political attention to the fact that infectious disease does not affect all citizens of the globe equally. Of the many factors operating to render some more vulnerable than others, human rights and gender equality play vital roles, as the international community learned in response to HIV/AIDS. An examination of the recent Ebola outbreak demonstrates once again that the promotion and protection of human rights, inclusive of a gender perspective, should underpin all interventions from the outset, so as to more effectively respond to Ebola and all public health crises.
