    • Description:
      Our Global Disease Detection Operations Center (GDDOC) continued working 24 / 7 monitoring potential outbreaks across the globe. In 2016 alone, the GDDOCs tracked over 35 outbreaks in more than 130 countries. Our Field Epidemiology Training Program trainees investigated more than 400 potential outbreaks around the world. And in the wake of Hurricane Matthew, our Emergency Response and Recovery Branch activated an Incident Management System for the first time and deployed nearly 20 staff to Haiti to provide essential surveillance, lab, water, sanitation and hygiene, epidemiology and policy support to the response. We also worked with our partners to complete Joint External Evaluations (JEE) in 28 countries. We know that no one nation can ensure global health security alone. Completing a JEE helps countries identify abilities and limitations within their health system and to prioritize opportunities for capacity development in disease prevention, detection, and response. Twenty more evaluations are scheduled for early 2017, putting us on target to complete JEEs in at least 50 countries by the World Health Assembly in May 2017.
