Yes, it would be good to know more about this.
For the Ebola Outbreak, there are a few concrete examples coming-out. There are also various software developments for mobile equipment going on and it would interesting to know how they integrate OpenStreetMap.
I added to the wiki page of the Activation a section where I invite to list the various projects that use OSM for the Ebola Outbreak. I already listed a few examples.

whenever I tell friends about the HOT projects, I get a lot of sceptic
responses. Most people don't see the importance of our maps and there
are even voices saying it is much more something to keep mappers
occupied than actual help.
If I go deeper into online research on the impact of HOT, I can find
some opinions here and there, but these are mostly very vague and based
on few people's opinions.
Is there more than "The maps helped a lot!" or "The maps could help in
case xxx..." anywhere?
Are there any quantitative data sets or any scientifically executed
