Ebola: Resources to Combat the Disease

Ebola disease - also called Ebola fever or ebola hemorrhagic fever - is a rare and often fatal illness that humans and nonhuman primates can contract. There have been several outbreaks of the disease in Africa, but the disease has recently made it's way to here in the United States and if the correct prevention measures and protocol to control the disease does not take place, it may spread rapidly.

WPHA recommends these resources to its members to help combat the disease in case it were to make its way to Wisconsin:

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

Wisconsin Department of Health Services

National Association of County and City Health Officials

American Public Health Association
