Stopping Ebola by Land, Water and Air
Speed is paramount in our response to the Ebola epidemic in West Africa as we continue to be vigilant in the fight to extinguish Ebola.
The faster we get to communities with suspected cases, the faster we protect the people there. That gets us closer to stopping this epidemic — and protecting people here in the United States and throughout the world.
What’s Working: Public Health Progress since the Haiti 2010 Earthquake
Since the horrific earthquake in Haiti 5 years ago, CDC has worked with Haitian doctors, nurses, technicians, community volunteers to make a Haiti a much healthier place. We've seen great strides in their access to safe water, their immunization rates have doubled and we've trained more than 200 epidemiologists to boost their public health infrastructure. CDC will continue to invest in Haiti's public health systems through partnership and training, ensuring Haiti will be able to continue saving lives into the future.
