Former Sen. Frist Examines U.S. Ebola Response, Reflects On Global HIV Efforts

ONE blog: Bill Frist: A hard look at the Ebola epidemic and barriers to containment
In a guest post, former U.S. Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) examines the current U.S. government response to Ebola, including the role of the military, and draws comparisons to the U.S. response to global HIV/AIDS and the creation of PEPFAR. Frist concludes, “Without containment, this epidemic will become a pandemic. The world community including the U.S. needs to help. However, help needs to be culturally sensitive and build lasting solutions. We cannot fish for them, we must teach them to fish” (9/17).
