HHS Coordination of Roles and Responsibilities for Ebola Response Efforts

Since the first cases of Ebola were reported in West Africa in March 2014, the United States has mounted a Government-wide response to contain and eliminate the epidemic at its source while also taking prudent measures to protect the American people. The HHS effort was launched encompassing many divisions, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Office of Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response, National Institutes of Health, Food and Drug Administration, Office of Global Affairs, and U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps. We will review the extent to which HHS planned and coordinated strategic decisions related to HHS's Ebola response efforts. We will also review how HHS's Ebola response activities were planned and coordinated with other U.S. Government agencies.
