What is the NETEC?
The 2014 Ebola epidemic was the largest in history, affecting multiple countries in West Africa. The Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) established the National Ebola Training and Education Center (NETEC) in July of 2015 to increase the competency of healthcare and public health workers and the capability of healthcare facilities to deliver safe, efficient, and effective patient care.
The National Ebola Training and Education Center is comprised of faculty and staff from Emory University, the University of Nebraska Medical Center/Nebraska Medicine and the New York Health + Hospitals Corporation, Bellevue Hospital Center. All three of these healthcare institutions have safely and successfully treated patients with Ebola and have worked diligently over the past two years to share their knowledge with other healthcare facilities and public health jurisdictions. The goal of the NETEC is to combine these resources into one comprehensive assessment, education and training tool for healthcare systems throughout the United States.
