SPHTM response to Ebola

Tulane is an official collaborating institution with the World Health Organization’s Global Outbreak Alert and Response Network (GOARN). Faculty of the Tulane School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine contributed their expertise in the response to the 2014-16 outbreak of Ebola virus in West Africa and to the public's understanding of the disease.
