How Philanthropy Can Act to Stop the Ebola Crisis
October 2, 2014 1:00 pm Eastern Time
Cosponsored by the Center for Disaster Philanthropy, Grantmakers In Health, and Philanthropy New York
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates the number of Ebola cases could top 1.4 million within the next four months. While the epidemic is spreading rapidly, it could be contained with swift, coordinated international coordination among governments, nongovernmental organizations, and communities. This webinar described how international work is addressing the immediate needs of patients as well as long-term systems change, the ways in which philanthropy’s investments can make a difference, and how places like New York are preparing for the implications of the crisis. Speakers included: Marine Buissonniere of Open Society Foundations, Isaac Benowitz of the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, Lisha McCormick of Last Mile Health, Bob Ottenhoff of the Center for Disaster Philanthropy, and David Whalen of Partners In Health.
