EBOLA: People + Public Health + Political Will is about the history of Ebola in West Africa, 2014-2016, and how CDC, global partners, governments, organizations, and individuals came together to stop an epidemic.

This digital exhibit is based on the exhibition EBOLA: People + Public Health + Political Will organized by the David J. Sencer CDC Museum at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Atlanta from June 2017 through May 2018. The physical exhibit was designed and produced by museum staff, including Judy Gantt, Louise Shaw, and Mary Hilpertshauser. Oral histories were compiled and produced by Sam Robson.

The digital exhibit replicates much of the original exhibit, but also provides additional interactive features and extended commentary. It was collaboratively produced by a team of students, faculty, and staff from three different institutions in Atlanta: Georgia State University, Emory University, and David J. Sencer CDC Museum at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The project is an evolving and ongoing process with input, research, and updates from GSU and Emory students and faculty as lesson plans and curriculum related to the exhibit content are developed and implemented.
