How We Stop Disease Threats Around the World

New Article Shines Light on Global Health Security

We don’t know when or where the next global health crisis will strike, but we know one is coming. As the world works to prepare against the threat, CDC announces the first in a timely series of more than 30 articles to be featured in a special supplement of the Emerging Infectious Diseases (EID) journal focusing on global health security.

We encourage you to read and share the article: U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and its Partners’ Contributions to Advance Global Health Security. This online article and the upcoming supplement offer critical insight from subject matter experts in CDC’s Division of Global Health Protection and other CDC programs, and from partners engaged in global health security activities across our world.

CDC’s global health protection platform works to protect the health, safety, and security of Americans and people everywhere. As a trusted partner in global health security, we offer the necessary technical skills and expertise to stop diseases before they become global pandemics.
