The U.S. Africa Command, through U.S. Army Africa, provides coordination of logistics, training, and engineering support to the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) in West Africa to assist in the overall U.S. Government Foreign Humanitarian Assistance/Disaster Relief efforts to contain the spread of the Ebola Virus/Disease, as part of the international assistance effort supporting the Governments of Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea.

“US Army Africa is establishing a Joint Force Headquarters in Monrovia at the direction of the President of the United States, to coordinate military support for the United States Agency for International Development-led comprehensive U.S. Government response to the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. As the designated Joint Force Commander planning military support to this broad international effort to support the Government of Liberia, I am currently working here in Liberia with an assessment team to determine how to provide command and control, logistics expertise, training, and engineering support under Operation UNITED ASSISTANCE.” –Maj. Gen. Darryl A. Williams, Commander, U.S. Army Africa
