USAID’s “IMPACT blog”: An Unprecedented Response to the Ebola Crisis
Nancy Lindborg, assistant administrator for the Bureau for Democracy, Conflict and Humanitarian Assistance at USAID, discusses the U.S. response to Ebola, including the announcement by President Obama of “a clear, comprehensive, and global strategy to stop the outbreak,” and USAID’s role. Lindborg concludes, “We know tough months lie ahead. It will require a coordinated effort by the entire global community to help stem this terrible public health crisis. But every outbreak of Ebola in the last 40 years has been stopped, and this one will be, as well” (9/17).
