As parts of West Africa are being ravaged by the Ebola epidemic, stakeholders around the world are attempting to coordinate to identify the most effective ways to address the spread of disease. One response, from USAID and partners, is to launch Fighting Ebola: A Grand Challenge for Development in an effort to elicit innovative ideas focused on the role of healthcare workers. To start, partner OpenIDEO has launched the first part of this initiative with a wide call for ideas.The Duke Ebola Innovation Challenge offers a unique opportunity for Duke graduate and undergraduate students from diverse schools and disciplines to work together in teams of four to five to generate innovative ideas for the OpenIDEO Fighting Ebola Challenge. See website to learn how to register as part of a team and participate in the challenge.
