  • Description:
    Activities in West Africa: $603M -- Ebola affected countries -- Ebola affected countries: activities to stop the outbreak -- Ebola preparedness: activities to prepare and respond to Ebola and other infectious diseases (examples).

    Funding support helped CDC implement activities to end Ebola transmission in Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Liberia and scale up efforts to prepare for and respond to cases of Ebola in countries that are most at risk. Efforts have focused on:

    • Contact tracing to identify new Ebola cases quickly

    • Infection control activities and trainings in healthcare facilities

    • Setting up mobile laboratories and reducing time to get test results

    • Exit screening protocols and training for airport staff to prevent high-risk or symptomatic passengers from boarding flights
