In March 2014, CDC first learned of an outbreak of Ebola in West Africa. CDC immediately sent a team to the field, initiating what would become the largest international outbreak response in the agency’s 70-year history. There have been thousands of CDC deployments to West Africa, and over 3,000 CDC employees have battled Ebola from the agency’s Emergency Operations Center in Atlanta. Working with the affected countries and our international partners, CDC has been heavily engaged in the international and domestic responses to Ebola. Important headway has been made, but the fight is far from over, and we risk losing ground if we don’t stay focused. CDC continues to work in West Africa with the goal of getting to zero new cases in the affected countries and, just as important, keeping them at zero.
