On U.S. Global Leadership: Speaking at an Atlantic Council Witkowsky addressed the international response to the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, “this epidemic is not something from which the United States is going to be able to isolate itself. And it underscored what we knew already, the need for a concerted and coordinated U.S. government, international and private sector response. It has become all the more urgent. The risks posed by infectious disease are not new. But in our interconnected world, they are intensifying.” (Source)
