Advancing the Global Health Security Agenda
Stopping outbreaks at the source. Protecting America’s future.
CDC works 24/7 to protect America’s health security by fighting dangerous disease threats around the world. We are the frontline responders, containing outbreaks overseas so they do not reach our shores.
The World Health Organization’s (WHO) Joint External Evaluations (JEEs) are voluntary, external assessments of a country’s capacity to prevent, detect, and respond to infectious diseases and other public health threats.
