Fever in the Jungle by Sebastian Kevany

– marking and observing International Day of Epidemic Preparedness –

Today is International Day of Epidemic Preparedness, a day of observation that is officially recognised by the United Nations, subsequent to a decision of the General Assembly in December 2020. Its purpose is to raise awareness about the importance of having effective measures at local, national, regional and global level to prevent and respond to epidemics.

But what is life really like amidst the global battle against epidemics and infectious diseases?

Sebastian Kevany, author of Fever in the Jungle: Inside the World of an Epidemic Troubleshooter, has been to some of the remotest corners of the world – off the beaten tracks and to places where there are no tracks at all! He is able to draw on his experiences of over one hundred treatment, prevention and outbreak missions, describing them all in vivid detail. Amidst the fight against HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria, Ebola, he takes us out of hotel room bubbles, from rattling convoys and ramshackle malaria clinics in South Sudan, to air-conditioned meetings with government officials in Sierra Leone.

Sebastian captures the fine line between success and failure in tackling some of the greatest challenges facing humanity. This is a book that will inspire involvement in the work of epidemic control in inhospitable places.

– Mark Pollock, author of Making It Happen

About the Author

Brian Corvin was born in Dublin, Ireland in 1937 but he considers himself to be a citizen of the world.

His first book, The Dream Journey, was published in 2010 and this was followed, in 2016, by The Unity Project, which completed the cycle that he set out to achieve with his first book. His third book, The Compendium contains, in addition to poetry and haiku, some short stories and one-act plays as well as an autobiographical fragment. His latest book, The Unity of the Species: Realising Our Potential, outlines the path that he believes humanity must travel in the foreseeable future.

He has been inspired by Bahaullah, the prophet of globalisation but feels that his writing should be grounded in the here and now of the world that he finds around him
