This exhibition is a look at the historic 2014-16 epidemic in West Africa, the U.S., and around the world. The exhibition explores the early days of the outbreak; the heroic work of West African and international healthcare workers; how CDC worked with the governments of Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone, and other partners; how America responded when Ebola reached the U.S.; and issues facing Ebola survivors, including stigma. CDC personnel deployed to West Africa assisted with the response efforts, and in Atlanta, thousands of CDC staff members provided logistics, communications, and management support.
The exhibition features artifacts, first-person audio testimonials, innovative health communication materials, and documentaries; stunning photographs by leading photojournalists, and images taken by CDC staff deployed to West Africa. The exhibition ends with an introspective look at “lessons learned” by CDC and its partners, and the efforts to create a public health and societal infrastructure that can conquer diseases such as Ebola before they become international public health emergencies.
EBOLA: People + Public Health + Political Will is organized and sponsored by the David J. Sencer CDC Museum, Office of the Associate Director for Communication, the National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Diseases, the Center for Global Health, and the CDC Foundation.
