    • Description:
      The Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA), launched in 2014, is a global effort to strengthen the world’s ability to prevent, detect, and respond to infectious disease threats, whether they are naturally occurring, accidentally, or intentionally released. The purpose of the GHSA is to accelerate progress toward achievement of the International Health Regulations (2005) and strengthen global public health capacities within 31 countries and the Caribbean Community— divided into Phase I of 17 countries and Phase II of 14 additional nations. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) plays a leading role in the implementation of the GHSA for the United States (U.S.). As part of the broader U.S. government engagement, CDC is committed to working in these countries to strengthen their capabilities to identify, track, and stop outbreaks or other public health emergencies. More than 70% of the world remains underprepared to prevent, detect, and respond to a public health emergency. Through GHSA, the CDC works with countries to strengthen public health systems and capacity to quickly identify and contain outbreaks at the source, before they spread into regional epidemics or global pandemics. Public health threats, health emergencies, and infectious diseases do not recognize or respect borders. Effective and functional public health systems in all countries reduce the risk and opportunity for health threats to affect the U.S. CS293380-A Publication date from document properties.
