  • Description:
    The Global Foodborne Infections Network (GFN) equips countries to better detect and control foodborne and other enteric infections through increased capacity for integrated laboratory-based surveillance, and collaboration among human, veterinary, and food sectors.

    Led by its three founding agencies, the World Health Organization, the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Danish Technical University-Food, and eight other global partners, GFN builds and strengthens national capacities for disease detection and control primarily through training courses and applied country projects. Training courses focus on regional or national needs ranging from basic to advanced laboratory practices, surveillance, outbreak detection and response, and attribution.

    Projects include studies on specific pathogens, enhanced surveillance initiatives, burden of illness estimations, or antimicrobial resistance work. GFN also builds capacity through other activities such as an external quality assurance system, country databank (passive Salmonella surveillance), reference services, fellowships, and routine communication.
