Where Does Guinea Stand in the Fight Against Ebola?

Where Does Guinea Stand in the Fight Against Ebola?
A Conversation with CDC Director Tom Frieden

3:15PM – 3:45PM (EST)
Monday, March 23, 2015

Conference Call**

Much progress has been made by the Government of Guinea and their international partners to stop Ebola over the past several months. Still, challenges remain. The course of Guinea’s Ebola epidemic has differed significantly from that of its neighbors. While Guinea did not experience the period of exponential growth in cases that occurred in Liberia and Sierra Leone during the height of their epidemics, its outbreak stubbornly continues to smolder. Getting to zero new cases in Guinea may be particularly challenging due to a relatively larger country and population size and persistent resistance within communities.

On Monday, March 23, the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) will host a call with Dr. Tom Frieden, Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), to discuss his recent trip to assess the Ebola outbreak in Guinea. The discussion will focus on efforts and challenges to bring the Ebola outbreak in Guinea under control. J. Stephen Morrison, Senior Vice President and Director, Global Health Policy Center at CSIS, will moderate the conversation.

Please RSVP here.

**Call-in information will be sent to those who RSVP on Monday morning.
