Dr Calum Semple is a senior lecturer in Child Heath and Consultant Respiratory Paediatrician at the University of Liverpool. In 2014, he was tasked by the World Health Organization to assess the research capacity of Sierra Leone’s Ebola treatment sites. However, after arriving in the country in January 2015, he soon took a more ‘hands-on’ approach to providing clinical care.
Calum appeared on the University of Liverpool Podcast to discuss the Western intervention in the Ebola crisis – and the surprising impact it had on the disease’s eventual containment.
