The Department of Defense Ebola Treatment Training Team, the joint-service team tasked by the DOD to train health care workers to staff Ebola treatment units, is scheduled to transition its critical mission for the Joint Forces Command – United Assistance, Jan. 1, 2015.

Initially split between the DET-3 and the World Health Organization, the training mission will be transferred back to the WHO, who provides the course for the Liberian Ministry of Health; the ETU health care workers who were trained as trainers; and PAE, a contracting company.

Since the start of their mission, Oct. 27, 2014, the DET-3, comprised of service members from the Army, Navy and Air Force, has trained more than 1,500 between the course offered at the National Police Training Academy facility and the mobile training teams, which reached out to the remote regions of Liberia.
