Working Together. Defeating Ebola.
The Ebola epidemic in West Africa sparked an unprecedented response by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and its partners, including CDC Foundation donors.
Working Together. Defeating Ebola. captures these powerful partnerships through photos by David Snyder, who traveled to Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea on assignment in 2015. The exhibit, organized by the David J. Sencer CDC Museum and the CDC Foundation, follows CDC’s dedicated scientists and public health experts on the frontlines of the epidemic, showing how funding from CDC Foundation donors provided vital support to meet diverse needs, such as laboratory equipment to test for Ebola, tablets and computers to track the disease, vehicles and motorcycles for transportation, emergency operations centers and health communications to educate citizens and change behaviors. These partnerships and the sustainable infrastructure they created will continue to aid West Africa for years to come.
While Ebola was once strong, these partnerships are stronger—leaving indelible marks of remembrance, progress and hope.
