  • Description:
    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has been collaborating with ICDDR, B (formerly known as the International Centre for Diarrheal Disease Research, Bangladesh) over the last 40 years--most recently to strengthen the country's capacity to detect emerging infectious diseases in human and animal populations and to provide training and other interventions to host country partners. A strong collaboration between CDC and the Institute of Epidemiology Disease Control and Research (IEDCR) within the Bangladesh Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MOHFW) has further strengthened the country's ability to detect and respond to disease threats. Since 2002, a CDC medical epidemiologist has led the Centre for Communicable Diseases at ICDDR, B and CDC is currently formally designating Bangladesh as CDC's newest Global Disease Detection Center for enhancing global health security for rapid detection and response to emerging and reemerging infectious diseases.
