FRONTLINE filmmakers Dan Edge and Sasha Achilli answer your questions about Ebola and filming in West Africa during the height of the 2014-2015 outbreak.

In this clip they discuss “social mobilization” which was essentially public health outreach in areas devastated by Ebola. Despite these efforts, it was difficult to educate people about Ebola because rumors were running rampant that Westerners were intentionally bringing Ebola into the country.
