  • 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 CDC medical epidemiologist led icddr,b's Centre for Communicable Diseases (known as the Programme on Infectious Diseases and Vaccine Sciences before 2012) from 2002-2013 and two CDC epidemiologists currently serve as senior CDC technical advisors to icddr,b. 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. In 2012, CDC designated Bangladesh as a CDC Global Disease Detection Center for enhancing global health security for rapid detection and response to emerging and reemerging infectious diseases.
