GHSA in Action Stories

In the worldwide effort to meet the 11 defined targets of the Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA), CDC brings extensive experience in public health emergency management, disease tracking, surveillance systems, training, infection control, and laboratory systems targeting high-hazard pathogens, including Ebola. CDC is currently working with partner countries to:

  • Prevent avoidable catastrophes through targets addressing antibiotic resistance, zoonotic disease, biosafety/biosecurity, and immunization
  • Detect threats early through targets for strengthening laboratory and surveillance systems, reporting, and a capable workforce
  • Respond rapidly and effectively through targets for building Emergency Operations Centers, linking public health and law enforcement, and improving medical countermeasures and personnel deployment

The stories on this page illustrate the day-to-day work being done by CDC and its country partners to implement the GHSA across the globe.
