Other research indicates that survivors who were pregnant when they were infected can pass the virus to the fetus. The virus has also been detected in the placenta. And semen may contain Ebola longer than previously thought.
It's not over, and so our faculty Daniel Bausch continues to work on unravelling the mysteries of post-Ebola infection.
New findings are informing how to care for Ebola survivors and their communities

Dr. Arden Miller fought for children’s health. Miller was a former APHA president and colleague of dean Pierre Buekens, who gives a comment about Dr. Miller's boldness and passion for maternal child health in this piece.

At 17, Arden Miller decided three things about his life: that he would move upward from his modest beginnings; have a big, happy family and enter a career that would bring good to the world.

Ebola is still taking its toll on people. Survivors face lingering health and mental health problems.
It's not over, and so our faculty Daniel Bausch continues to work on unravelling the mysteries of post-Ebola infection.

About half the survivors seem to have chronic joint pain that is often severe enough to prevent them from working, an expert said.

A new Tulane University study of the West African chocolate industry estimates that 2.12 million child laborers worked in cocoa production in the 2013/2014 cocoa harvest season in Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana. The study, commissioned by the U.S. Department of Labor, also found evidence of important progress, including significant improvements in access to education for child laborers in both countries.
