Ways you can support UCSF's response efforts.

When assessing a situation, GDAC considers a broad range of potential responses to help those affected.

This can include:

  • Advocacy

  • Fundraising

  • Education or training

  • Direct patient care

  • Organizing volunteer groups

  • Research

  • Consulting

  • Rapid needs assessment

  • Donating vacation time to UCSF personnel taking leaves to absence to volunteer

  • Backfilling volunteers' or responders' regular work

In 2014, UCSF formed the Ebola Task Force to respond to the health crisis in West Africa and enlisted many of the tactics above.
