American Refugee Committee's Response to The Ebola Crisis

Operational Summary: 

This Ebola outbreak, the largest in history, has taken a devastating toll on families and communities in West Africa. The US government is responding by rapidly constructing Ebola Treatment Units (ETUs) in every county of Liberia, the country hardest hit by the virus. ARC will be operating and managing one of those ETUs and providing life-saving assistance in Fish Town, a rural community located in River Gee County. The goal is to provide high quality testing, treatment and care to those who contract Ebola and to contain the virus from spreading further within the county and to neighboring Ivory Coast. ARC has 15 years of recent experience working in Liberia, and we have more than 35 years of experience providing front-line health care – including prevention and direct clinical treatment of infectious diseases – in complex emergency settings.
