Just two years after graduating from medical school, Liberian physician Soka Moses was thrust into the 2014 Ebola outbreak. Many of his fellow doctors and nurses fled the country once the dangerous disease started quickly claiming lives, but Soka stayed behind, determined to help keep people safe at home and abroad.

When the worst of the outbreak was over, Soka saw that many Ebola survivors were facing ongoing health issues and stigmatization from their community for being infected. With limited government funding and resources to care for these patients, Soka shifted his attention, providing treatment, training, and support at the Ebola Survivor’s Clinic. Watch Soka’s 2017 TEDMED Talk to be inspired by his courageous work treating Ebola patients during, and after, the epidemic.
