    Foreword -- Overview: GDD program -- Monitoring and evaluation -- GDD activities (Outbreak response, Pathogen discovery, Training, Surveillance, Networking).

    The Global Disease Detection (GDD) program of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) was established in 2004 to rapidly detect and contain emerging health threats. Through our work with the World Health Organization (WHO) and host countries, CDC has made measurable progress toward building global public health capacity in support of the International Health Regulations (IHR). During 2009, the program realized notable achievements, which are highlighted in this most recent Monitoring and Evaluation Report. CDC experienced challenges and opportunities in 2009. The 2009 H1N1 influenza (H1N1) pandemic served as a reminder that emerging infectious disease threats remain a reality, despite the progress that has been made in global public health. It also highlighted the value of existing global health networks in responding to emerging health threats; CDC and many health partners around the world were able to quickly mobilize as part of the global response efforts. GDD's contributions to the response are highlighted throughout this report. Congress appropriated funding for an additional site in 2009. After a competitive process, Delhi, India, was selected as the location for a seventh GDD Regional Center. The additional GDD Center represents an important step forward in achieving the long-term goal of global health security through our contribution and eventual establishment of 18 GDD Regional Centers. It also enhances the geographic coverage of the GDD program and further strengthens global public health capacity-building activities, particularly in the South Asia Region. CDC is working with its counterparts in India to establish the Regional Center and begin initial activities as part of this collaboration. In December 2009, CDC's Division of Global Disease Detection and Emergency Response was officially designated by WHO as a Collaborating Center for Implementation of the International Health Regulations National Surveillance and Response Capacity. The tenure will be effective through 2013, and marks a significant step for the program. As a WHO Collaborating Center, GDD will coordinate a full range of expertise and resources in each of the WHO regions and build national core capacities to meet the minimal IHR requirements in surveillance and response. The 2009 GDD Monitoring and Evaluation Report highlights the collective achievements of the GDD Regional Centers, other CDC programs, and partners in building global public health capacity.
