KFF Issue Brief Examines Key Differences In International, U.S. Response To Ebola Since 2014 Outbreak
Kaiser Family Foundation: The latest Ebola outbreak: what has changed in the international and U.S. response since 2014?
The United States played a leading role in the international response to the 2014 Ebola outbreak in West Africa, providing the most financial support, mobilizing U.S. staff across the federal government, and jumpstarting international efforts to strengthen global health security. As this month’s new outbreak unfolds in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), the U.S. so far is playing a more limited role. In this new Kaiser Family Foundation brief, Josh Michaud, associate director for global health policy, and Jen Kates, vice president and director of global health & HIV policy, examine key differences and changes since 2014 that are shaping how the U.S. and international community are responding in the DRC (5/25).
