Media CenterFrom Catholic News Service: CRS Puts Ebola's Hard Lesson to Use Against Zika
Two years ago, the world's worst Ebola outbreak left 11,310 people dead in West Africa. Catholic Relief Services was there to respond and help those who needed it. But now, West Africa faces a new threat from mosquitoes carrying the Zika virus. In an article from Catholic News Service, Michael Stulman, regional information officer for West and Central Africa, and Roberta Rezende, program manager for VECCOS in Cape Verde, talk about how CRS' response to Ebola is helping prepare for the fight against Zika in Cape Verde.
"We put an enormous amount of effort into public education" fighting Ebola in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, "and this experience is now helping us in our response to Zika."
