Seminar with Q&A
In late 2013, an Ebola outbreak began in rural Guinea before quickly spreading to the neighboring countries of Sierra Leone and Liberia. By the time the epidemic ended in 2016, some two and a half years after the initial case, there had been over 28,600 cases and 11,325 deaths across seven countries.
Improving public health infrastructure and surveillance systems quickly emerged as priorities following the epidemic to prevent similar outbreaks in the future. In the first global health security seminar of the 2018 academic calendar, Alpha Barry, Erin Sorrell, and Aurelia Attal-Juncqua – members and collaborators of the Georgetown Center for Global Health Science and Security – will present on their experiences working as implementers for the U.S. CDC on a large public health capacity-building project in Guinea following the 2014 Ebola epidemic.
