Domestic Ebola Supplement to the Epidemiology and Laboratory Capacity for Infectious Diseases (ELC).

This ELC Competing Supplement addresses priority domestic capacity building around Ebola and other emerging and highly-infectious diseases.

The Competing Supplement (1) provides additional resources to accelerate ELC activities around infection control assessment and response, laboratory safety,
and global migration, border interventions, and migrant health; and (2) aligns with ELC's existing purpose which is to protect the public health and safety of the American people by enhancing the capacity of public health agencies to effectively detect, respond, prevent and control known and emerging (or re-emerging) infectious diseases.

This is accomplished by providing financial and technical resources to (1) strengthen epidemiologic capacity; (2) enhance laboratory capacity; (3) improve information systems; and (4) enhance collaboration among epidemiology, laboratory, and information systems components of public health departments.

Agency - Department of Health and Human Services
