Be Part of the Ebola Response

The ongoing Ebola outbreak in West Africa is the largest ever recorded.  The countries affected in West Africa have reported more than 15,900 suspected and confirmed cases. While we are starting to see early signs of progress, we will need to continue to expand the pace, ingenuity, and scale of our response to stop Ebola for good.

The United States is working with the World Health Organization and other international partners to help West African governments respond to and stop the outbreak of the Ebola virus as quickly as possible.

You, as an individual, can be part of the response, too.

Donate: Anyone can contribute money to non-governmental organizations responding to the outbreak. Cash donations allow reputable organizations working on the ground to purchase exactly what is most urgently needed, when it is needed.

Volunteer: Qualified medical professional can volunteer to help respond to the outbreak in West Africa.  If you interested in volunteering, please contact reputable organizations who are active in the Ebola response through the Center for International Disaster Information (CIDI).

The spread of the deadly Ebola virus in West Africa is also a reminder of the vast development needs that persist in some of the region’s poorest countries despite rapid economic growth and investment.  Go to to learn more about the U.S. response to the Ebola outbreak and how you can help those affected.
