I'm struck by Olive Minor's point that much of her work on Ebola involved de-emphasizing exotic cultural explanations in favor of recognizing an everyday logic shaping villagers' responses to the disease and public health interventions. All this makes good sense. My question for Dr. Minor and other presenters: as anthropologists have we done too much to highlight distinctive cultural logics? In many applied contexts, does this lead governmental and NGO officials to a more sophisticated version of blame the victim?

Question for Adam. It seems there were many and various stakeholders in the project. It was pretty complex. Were there conflicts among stakeholders, and how did you resolve these?

A theme across the work discussed is defining complex issues and the challenges of responding effectively to the particular issue. For all presenters, how did you communicate the need to go beyond the "band aid" to policymakers and funders?

I felt like I was seeing a lot of blaming "culture" in Liberia and Sierra Leone.

Or saying it's too complex and we don't have time/resources!
