  • Description:
    The GHSA vision is to achieve a world safe and secure from global health threats posed by infectious diseases – where we can prevent or mitigate the impact of naturally occurring out- breaks and accidental or intentional releases of dangerous pathogens, rapidly detect and trans- parently report outbreaks when they occur, and employ an interconnected global network that can respond effectively to limit the spread of infectious disease outbreaks in humans and animals, mitigate human suffering and the loss of human life, and reduce negative economic impact.

    The United States has made a commitment to assist 31 countries and the Caribbean Community to achieve 11 measurable GHSA targets. The United States is invest- ing $1 billion in resources across 17 “Phase I” countries to build capacity to prevent, detect, and respond to future infectious disease outbreaks. This funding has helped these countries design and implement 5-year GHSA roadmaps that address specific gaps in disease surveillance, laboratories, emergency management, biosafety and biosecurity, and other disciplines critical to health security. The United States is also working with 14 additional “Phase II” GHSA partner countries and the Caribbean Community to finalize GHSA roadmaps and mobilize international partner resources to achieve the GHSA targets.
