ERRB - Where We Work

Explore the efforts of the Emergency Response and Recovery Branch in the countries below.

Our Work in Pakistan

On July 22, heavy rains in Pakistan triggered the most severe floods the country has seen in over a decade. Over 15 million people may have been displaced and upwards of 20 million have been affected by the floods. Upon request from WHO, four CDC staff are being deployed to assist in response activities. They are providing technical guidance for USG coordination, cluster support and Disease Surveillance Early Warning System (DEWS).

Our Work in Haiti

ERRB was part of the 308 CDC staff members engaged in immediate response activities as part of Disaster Assistance and Response Teams, members of the U.S. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs Haiti Response Team, and rapid assessment teams as well as seconded to other U.S., Haitian and UN agencies in support of the Haitian relief effort. We have an ongoing commitment to Haiti and are currently conducting a nutritional survey in the most affected areas.
