I suspect that there are many examples of OpenStreetMap usage for Ebola epidemiology studies but did not find many information yet. I would be pleased that people report such studies.
Here is an example. There was an interesting discussion recently on Georezo about mapping Ebola contacts dispersion showing the network distribution of contacts.

The map below shows an example using the Hublines from the MMQGIS QGIS Plugin. This map clearly shows the power of maps for epidemiologists to analyze such problems and better manage such complex epidemies.
