[Editorial] Yellow fever: a global reckoning

Angola is currently facing its worst outbreak of yellow fever in 30 years. Since December, 2015, when the outbreak was first declared in the capital of Luanda, there have been 178 deaths, more than 1000 suspected cases, and spread to several provinces. Imported cases have now been reported in China, Kenya, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, posing a global health security risk. A mass vaccination campaign in Luanda began in February, but the emergency stockpile of the vaccine has already been exhausted.
