Introduction:

The Center for Biosecurity of UPMC, under contract to the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) through The Tauri Group, undertook a project entitled “International Disease Surveillance: United States Government Goals and Paths Forward.” This project focused on overarching issues related to USG interests in improving international surveillance for infectious diseases. The specific goals of the project were to provide DTRA leadership with expert judgments regarding the following: 1) Primary goals of international disease surveillance and the extent to which they are being met; 2) Priority areas for USG investment; 3) Ways to address major challenges to successful implementation of USG international disease surveillance efforts. The project also sought to foster ongoing communication and collaboration among DTRA, other USG agencies, NGOs, academia, and other parties engaged in international disease surveillance. Although several USG agencies were consulted for this project, this review did not analyze specific agency roles or responsibilities.
