Global Disease Detection (GDD)

Image collage of global disease detection activity, including people taking disease interviews in African, scientists examining bats for disease, two women using data for health apps on smartphones, and someone testing soil.

Early warning for international outbreaks is critical. We build capacity to detect, identify and contain emerging infectious diseases through ten state-of-the-art Global Disease Detection centers in different regions of the world.
