    The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) began working in Sierra Leone researching Lassa fever in the 1970’s. In 2008, the agency expanded its reach with the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief building laboratory and surveillance capacity. During the 2014-2015 Ebola response more than 700 staff served on over 1000 deployments. It was CDC’s largest outbreak response ever in a single country. In 2015, a permanent CDC Country Office was established to focus on Global Health Security efforts.
