Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla are donating $25 million to the Centers for Disease Control Foundation to help fight Ebola.

We need to get Ebola under control in the near term so that it doesn’t spread further and become a long term global health crisis that we end up fighting for decades at large scale, like HIV or polio. We believe our grant is the quickest way to empower the CDC and the experts in this field to prevent this outcome.

The grant is expected to help the frontline responders.
