We examine a shocking corruption scandal: how millions of dollars earmarked to help the survivors of Sierra Leone's lethal Ebola outbreak may have been stolen by government officials. As well as the thousands who lost their lives, millions more have lost their livelihoods in the west African outbreak, We hear a report from the region, and from a local anti-corruption official who says the government appears to have given up finding the culprits or recovering the cash. Also, with the Zika virus now threatening millions more across Latin America, we ask Dr Scott Gottlieb of the American Enterprise Institute, whether the global health lessons of Ebola, from public health responses to the development of vaccines, have really been learned.
