Description:The Global Disease Detection (GDD) program, funded by the U.S. Congress in 2004, protects Americans and others throughout the world from emerging infectious diseases by building capacity in outbreak detection and response in partnership with other countries and the WHO. The GDD program is working to close the critical gap between global public heath capacity defined in the IHR and the ability of many member states to meet these requirements. GDD unites the resources of United States and its international partners to provide technical assistance, logistical support, and funding through regional networks and intergovernmental organizations.
In 2006, the GDD program implemented a comprehensive monitoring and evaluation framework, which has helped to measure our progress in building capacity to rapidly detect and contain emerging disease threats. This GDD Monitoring and Evaluation Report provides a summary of the accomplishments of the program from 2006 to 2008 and represents the collective achievements of the GDD Regional Centers, other CDC programs, and partners.
