  • Description:
    The Emergency Response and Recovery Branch (ERRB) applies public health and epidemiologic science to reduce the health impact of disasters and emergencies, including complex humanitarian events and to strengthen the recovery of health systems in these settings. Working in partnership with other U.S. government agencies, United Nations (UN) agencies, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), ERRB coordinates, supervises, and monitors CDC’s work in international emergency settings and in refugee or displaced populations. The mission of CDC’s Emergency Response and Recovery Branch is to mitigate the impact of disasters, complex humanitarian and other emergencies on populations, and to support the recovery of health systems in these settings. ERRB staff are currently posted in Haiti, and seconded to the U.S. Agency for International Development’s (USAID) Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance. ERRB staff will be posted in Geneva, Switzerland to work with UN partners. In addition, staff are deployed on short-term assignments to provide support in emergency settings. factsheet_emergencyresponseandrecovery.pdf
