Abstract:

The 2014 Ebola outbreak in West Africa mobilized many U.S. Government agencies to jointly respond to an unprecedented crisis. This event demonstrated how DoD resources can operate to support other governmental agencies responding to public health emergencies and how previously established DoD relationships can be utilized to strengthen efforts preand post-crisis, said Capt. John Gilstad, commanding officer of the U.S. Naval Medical Research Unit No. 3 NAMRU-3. NAMRU-3 has been operating in West Africa for nearly two decades and has a Detachment in Ghana and a satellite laboratory in Liberia.
