Story by Gail McCabe
U.S. Africa Command supported Liberia when the African nation faced the biggest Ebola epidemic in history. A huge challenge in combating the virus was getting out to the remote areas affected by it. AFRICOM provided people for communication and coordination, engineering, and the logistical support to help get to those locations. That enabled medical staff to get to the affected locations much more quickly so they could provide care more quickly. Perhaps the greatest help AFRICOM provided came in the form of training. The command trained more than 1,500 healthcare workers.
