About the Exhibition:
EBOLA: People + Public Health + Political Will is an investigation of the historic 2014–2016 Ebola epidemic in West Africa, the United States, 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 United States; and issues facing Ebola survivors, including stigma. It 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 CDC Ebola Response Oral History Project and EBOLA: People + Public Health + Political Will are supported by the David J. Sencer CDC Museum, Office of the Associate Director for Communication; the Center for Global Health; the National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Diseases; the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases; the Office of the Chief Operating Officer; and the CDC Foundation.
