The World Health Organization declared an international emergency related to the Ebola Virus Disease outbreak in West Africa in September. Responses to this outbreak include: 1) neutralizing the outbreak within the countries of origin, 2) preventing transmission outside the country by screening travelers at departure from West Africa and re-entry to their home country, and 3) alerting health providers and others to increase their surveillance of those at risk. The Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) is committed to supporting objective three by educating travelers and those institutions such as schools that host travelers as well as providers about managing those at risk.read more >
