HCID and Ebola Webinar – Oct. 9, 2015
High consequence infectious disease (HCID) is a public health issue with the potential to affect the health and livelihoods of Texans. Governments, healthcare institutions, and public health organizations recognize the potential threat such diseases pose and have increased efforts to prepare for them. Informed citizens are better prepared to participate in a calm and effective response in the event of a HCID outbreak.
This webinar presents information from the 2014 Texas Ebola incident as well as the Texas Preparedness Strategy for High Consequence Infectious Diseases. It also outlines the State’s HCID/Ebola preparedness projects.
