Description:Caption:
During the 2014-2016, Ebola epidemic, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) deployed Border Health Teams to Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone. The CDC Border Health Teams provided technical assistance to airport staff in implementing exit screening of travelers, helped seaports develop their response plans, and traveled to land borders by car or helicopter to assess screening procedures at border crossings. At the height of the epidemic, Sierra Leone had several Ebola checkpoints, like the one pictured here. One at every chiefdom along the 3-hour drive, from Freetown to the Lungi-Freetown Airport, at which points, people would be checked for fever, and were required to wash their hands.

Captured by CDC staffer, Rebecca Myers, this picture was an entry in the 2016 CDC Connects, Public Health in Action Photo Contest, in the categories of Programs-International and People–International.
