HHS launches National Ebola Training and Education Center
To ensure that U.S. health care providers and facilities are
prepared to safely identify, isolate, transport, and treat
patients with Ebola and other emerging threats, the U.S.
Department of Health and Human Services today launched a National
Ebola Training and Education Center.
A collaborative effort among HHS’ Office of the Assistant
Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR), the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and three academic
institutions, the program supports further training of health
care providers and facilities on strategies to manage Ebola and
other emerging infectious diseases.
Through the effort, ASPR and CDC will provide $12 million over
the next five years to Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia;
University of Nebraska Medical Center/Nebraska Medicine in Omaha,
Nebraska; and Bellevue Hospital Center in New York City, New
York, which together will co-lead the National Ebola Training and
