The goal of the BTWG is to improve public health in the United States and Mexico. The group provides an established forum for the U.S. CDC and the Mexican Undersecretary for Prevention and Promotion within the Secretary of Health to facilitate regular discussion on technical matters in public health. The BTWG also advances binational collaborations in areas of mutual interest, such as:

  • outbreak investigations;
  • improved technology for laboratory diagnosis of infectious diseases;
  • laboratory and epidemiology trainings; and
  • infectious disease surveillance.
