The United States has mounted a wide-ranging response to the latest deadly outbreak, as only it can.

As three of the United States’ senior public health officials, we have helped lead the U.S. response to the ongoing Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo since it began over a year ago. From the first reports of illness, the outbreak has been a top global health priority for the Trump administration.

Despite the ominous scale of the outbreak, we found real reasons for hope when we, along with Adm. Tim Ziemer of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and several top National Security Council officials, traveled recently to Congo, Rwanda, and Uganda to meet with leaders and witness firsthand the public health work on the ground that the United States has been supporting for over a year now.
