Partners In Health (PIH) reports that a team of doctors and staff led by Dr. Paul Farmer are headed to Liberia to lay the groundwork for an ambitious two- to three-year project that will require well over 100 volunteer doctors, nurses, lab technicians, and public health workers to combat the Ebola crisis. PIH has also prepared an article of frequently asked questions about their Ebola response.
