In the last few years, we have helped launch five Grand Challenges for Development that have rallied students and scientists, innovators, and entrepreneurs to tackle some of humanity&rsquo;s toughest problems.</p> <p>Today, we face just that kind of challenge &mdash; a global health crisis that is in dire need of new ideas and bold solutions. From Guinea to Liberia to Sierra Leone, Ebola is devastating thousands of families, disrupting growth, and fraying the fabric of society. The United States is helping lead the global response to the epidemic, but we cannot do it alone. That is why President Obama launched our sixth Grand Challenge.

As such, many Americans have grown more concerned about the chances of an Ebola outbreak happening here at home.</p> <p class="p1">In <a href="http://www.cnn.com/2014/10/02/opinion/frieden-ebola-first-patient/index.html">a blog post for CNN last Thursday</a>, Dr. Tom Frieden, Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), explained exactly why we can &mdash; and will &mdash; stop the disease in the United States, and outlined the &quot;distinct differences in what will happen here&quot;:</p> <blockquote><p class="p2">The United States has a strong health care system and dedicated public health professionals -- all hard at work right now -- to make sure this case will not threaten the community at large, or the nation. A person who is sick from Ebola virus disease can be cared for in U.S. hospitals when the patient is isolated in a private room with a private bathroom and contact with them is highly controlled. Every health care worker must meticulously follow every single infection control protection we recommend.</p> <p class="p2">Public health officials, meanwhile, are also identifying people who have had close personal contact with the newly diagnosed patient and will follow up with them for 21 days, the longest known incubation period for Ebola.
