Every few years, a new pathogen emerges from the shadows to threaten global public health. And every few years, the global public health community struggles to mount a timely and effective response. The incremental advances that have defined public health in the last half century have been repeatedly outpaced by fast-moving epidemics. From HIV to Ebola, most innovations in preventing and containing outbreaks have come from medical countermeasures like vaccines, diagnostics, and therapeutics rather than advancements in epidemiological practice.



Our Mission

To protect people’s health from epidemics and disasters and ensure that communities are resilient to major challenges.
