CDC: CDC Remains Committed One Year into the Fight against Ebola in the Democratic Republic of the Congo
This post discusses CDC’s efforts to respond to the Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), noting, “One year into the fight against Ebola, CDC and the U.S. government remain committed to working with and empowering the ministries of health of DRC and neighboring countries, in collaboration with other international partners, to ensure the outbreak response is well coordinated to stop the spread of disease and end the outbreak. CDC is committed to strengthening the health care system in DRC to help reduce the risk of future outbreaks, not only of Ebola, but of other diseases such as HIV, measles, tuberculosis, and malaria. CDC’s commitment to global health goes hand in hand with CDC’s commitment to the safety and security of the American public” (8/1).
