This panel will discuss the development and evolution of the Check and Report Ebola (CARE) Plus program, a core component of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) domestic response to the recent Ebola outbreak in West Africa. The program was designed to educate travelers coming to the United States from Ebola-affected counties about government requirements for entry screening, symptom monitoring, and reporting to health departments. The program has been refined since its inception, in response to feedback from travelers, state partners, West African diaspora community members and CDC staff. These program development and evaluation findings can inform future practice and public health responses to communicable disease outbreaks.
