Details:
  • Description:
    CDC’s Global Rapid Response Team (Global RRT) enhances global health security by increasing CDC’s emergency response capacity as well as that of the global emergency workforce through collaboration with CDC country offices, ministries of health and international public health organizations. The Global RRT maintains resources and a multidisciplinary roster of CDC staff, both of which can rapidly mobilize to support CDC experts and partners responding to global public health concerns, within the US and abroad. The Global RRT maintains its operations from CDC Headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia with a dedicated team of full-time staff from across the Agency. There are more than 300 senior and junior surge staff representing almost all Centers and the Office of the Director, with over 50 ready to deploy at short notice each month. Global RRT staff can remain in the field during an emergency response for up to six months. By the first year anniversary of its first deployment, Global RRT staff have spent approximately 3,000 person-days in over 90 responses to cholera, yellow fever, Ebola, measles, polio, mass gatherings, and wildfires.
