As the head of CDC’s response to the Ebola epidemic in West Africa, Dr. Inger Damon is responsible for establishing a strategic direction and managing the day-to-day operation of the largest international emergency response in CDC history. “I have years of experience doing the core public health work that’s required to stop this Ebola epidemic,” says Damon. “The same tools we’re using to fight Ebola – focusing on community involvement, education, case identification including diagnostics, contact tracing, and isolation – were used to wipe out smallpox and are still used for monkeypox control.”
