Liberia after Ebola

Tuesday, January 13, 2015 - 9:30am to 11:30am

The Center for Global Development is pleased to host a discussion on Liberia after Ebola, featuring Senator Jeff Flake and Liberian Minster of Public Works, Gyude Moore.

The 2014 Ebola outbreak in West Africa continues to have an extraordinary human cost. But as the outbreak in Liberia appears to diminish, the international community should be preparing for a post-Ebola economic recovery, including building a strengthened health system. Following the keynote addresses, a panel will discuss the role of the international community in helping Liberia and West Africa rebuild in the aftermath of Ebola.

Featuring remarks by:

Senator Jeff Flake
Republican of Arizona

Gyude Moore
Minister of Public Works, Government of Liberia
