Global Health Security Agenda: CDC Drives 5 Years of Progress; Threats Remain

In today’s globalized world, a disease threat anywhere is a disease threat everywhere. 
 
The Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA) is an international effort to strengthen the world’s ability to prevent, detect, and respond to infectious disease threats. CDC’s investment in global health security drives five years of GHSA progress, making the United States and the world safer from infectious disease threats. Since the launch of the Global Health Security Agenda
  • All 17 CDC-supported GHSA countries have improved their capacity to identify, track, and respond to public health threats and outbreaks.
  • Outbreaks around the world have been detected and stopped more rapidly than ever before.
  • Over 4,400 people were trained in all FETP programs under GHSA. This is, on average, over two times as many FETP graduates per year than prior to the implementation of GHSA.
CDC will continue to build on its foundation of technical expertise, assisting countries in expanding and improving disease surveillance systems, laboratory systems, workforce development, and emergency management and response capacities. To protect the United States and the world from dangerous diseases and outbreaks, a sustained focus on global health security is critical.
