A veteran of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Epidemic Intelligence Service and an experienced emergency responder, Dr. Joel Selanikio took six weeks in the winter of 2014–2015 to run an Ebola Treatment Center in the heart of the epidemic in Sierra Leone, an experience shared with NPR listeners in the form of an audio diary. Unprepared for a “treatment center” largely without effective treatments, or for a patient death rate of more than 60%, Dr. Selanikio speaks of the daily and intimate patient contact, the personal fear and exhaustion, the co-workers risking their lives, and the dignity of patients facing near-certain death in this moving, up-close discussion of one of the deadliest infectious disease outbreaks in modern history.

USAID runs the world’s largest global health program, spending more than $5 billion a year in more than 30 countries around the world to address disease and bring new health technologies to large populations of lower-income families. As administrator of this organization, Dr. Rajiv Shah led an effort with public and private sector leaders to transform this portfolio into a focused effort to maximize the reduction of preventable child and maternal deaths. During his tenure at the Gates Foundation, Dr. Shah helped to create the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunizations and develop the International Finance Facility for Immunization. In each of these professional capacities, Dr. Shah worked to create product development partnerships and has developed a strong network of partners in government, corporate leadership, regulatory agencies and academia. Additionally drawing on his experiences to accelerate the global development and introduction of these products in markets around the world, he shares with audiences unique, thought-provoking views on how to develop, introduce and accelerate the rate of progress of new technologies in a global health care market in an increasingly complex world.
