In this ebola epidemic in West Africa, foreign aid workers, doctors and health teams have met significant resistance to treatment and prevention measures from some of the affected communities. Many local people, suspicious and fearful, have refused to go to treatment centers or turn over bodies for safe burial and some communities have prohibited the entry of doctors and health teams. Medical teams are involving anthropologists to understand the cultural context and local traditions to fight the virus.
