Models, Mayhem and Charismatic facts: The making of a global health emergency

Ann H. Kelly, Kings College London

Global Health attention is intense, but fickle. An awkward compromise
of economic interests and geopolitics, moral and epidemiological
logics, global health 'emergencies' crystalize around distinct and
often countervailing values. There are emerging threats and persistent
plagues; examples of gross negligence and near-triumph-devastating
illness that demand large-scale investment and mundane suffering that
could be redressed with the application of minimal resources. But
whether it is HIV, Guinea Worm or obesity, the ways in which a public
health issue becomes a global concern depends on how its present
danger is tied to our collective future. A global health emergency is
built upon a vision; it is as much a matter of moral fervour and
collective mobilisation, as of fact.

This paper analyses the modalities of evidentiary charisma at work in
the 2014-2015 Ebola Outbreak response. It contextualises the
transmission models generated to Ebola's spread through an analysis of
the Global Malaria Eradication campaign launched in the mid-1950s and
the mathematical model of transmission upon which it was built.
Drawing together these two occasions of global health
acceleration-each in their own way 'races as against time'-this paper
explores the peculiar power of evidentiary claims to marshal salience,
mobilize resources and short-circuit any other possible future, than
the one of its own making.
