    • Description:
      GDD operates as CDC’s platform for developing and strengthening global capacity to rapidly detect, accurately identify, and promptly contain emerging infectious disease and bioterrorist threats that occur internationally. Enhancing global health security - A weakness in the surveillance system for infectious diseases in any one country is a threat to all countries. This risk to U.S. national and global interests underscores the need for a coordinated and connected system to detect and respond to emerging, and re-emerging, infectious diseases. Protecting health through cooperation - Through the revised International Health Regulations (IHR 2005), countries are responsible for effective monitoring, reporting, and response to any disease threat with the potential to harm the public’s health. These guidelines require renewed cooperation and coordination between countries for full and effective implementation. Working in coordination with the World Health Organization, ministries of health and other U.S. government agencies, CDC is committed to helping countries with limited resources develop the essential detection control capacities.
