Partnership in Action

Results-based partnerships are critical to NCEZID's mission to protect people from infectious diseases where they live, where they work and play, when they travel, and where they get care. These collaborations span the globe and have led to innovative and successful prevention, early detection, and response to infectious disease threats.
