Global Health Security - 2018 Social Media Toolkit

The Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA) is a global effort to strengthen the world’s ability to prevent, detect, and respond to infectious disease threats, whether they are naturally occurring, accidental, or intentionally released. More than 70% of the world remains underprepared for a public health emergency. Through the GHSA, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) works with countries to strengthen public health systems and capacity to quickly identify and contain outbreaks at the source, before they spread into regional epidemics or global pandemics.

This Global Health Security Agenda: CDC’s Achievements and Impact Social Media Toolkit includes communication tools that make it easy for individuals and partner organizations to increase awareness of CDC’s work to strengthen countries’ public health systems.

The toolkit includes:

  • Sample social media messages for Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram
  • Hashtags and handles
  • Shareable graphics
  • Global health security photos
