Ashish K. Jha, the K.T. Li Professor of Global Health at Harvard University, and dean for global strategy at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, discusses the Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), suspected cases in Tanzania, and the role of the international community in helping end the outbreak. Jha writes, “It will take American leadership, working with our allies in Europe and Africa, to bring this disease to a close.
