Abstract

In his letter, Peace is a better focus than Ebola in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), David M. Brett-Major provides a vital reminder of the tragic undercurrent of violence and political instability dominating African regions currently impacted by the second worst Ebola outbreak in modern history. He characterizes health-centric activities as a "common mistake" to remedy the "vicious cycle" of endemic violence and disease outbreaks in DRC and surrounding areas. What is truly needed is a "concerted peace and development process, with health as a voice in a chorus - not alone."
