UNA-NCA Hosts event on "The Ebola Outbreak: Challenges and Next Steps for the Future"

In response to the ongoing Ebola outbreak, the African Affairs Committee hosted a global health forum with the theme: “The Ebola Outbreak: Challenges and Next Steps for the Future” on January 14. The attendees of the forum included international delegates, healthcare/public health professionals, and students. The event was hosted at the GW Milken Institute School of Public Health in Washington, DC.

The forum commenced with a keynote address from Dr. Lynn Goldman, Dean and professor at the GW Milken Institute School of Public Health. Her remarks were followed by that of Honorable Elizabeth Johnson Sirleaf, Deputy Minister for Administration-Liberia, who gave a riveting testimony about the current state of affairs in Liberia. Moderated by Dr. Ron Waldman, Professor at the Milken Institute School of Public Health, the panel of six experts discussed a variety of topics including technology and health systems strengthening, potential economic impact, and the engagement of civic society.

The Africa Committee will continue to engage the global community to identify ideas that will deliver practical and cost effective innovations and partnerships necessary to combat and stop the spread of this outbreak in the affected countries.
