International Preparedness and Response

International Health Graphic showing a map of the world with labratory workers, viruses, international aid workers, and international agreements. All countries face many threats with the potential for large-scale health consequences, such as disease outbreaks, natural disasters, and terrorist attacks. Preparing for and responding to these and other threats requires the commitment of, and cooperation among, many international partners. We must work closely with global partners to address common threats around the world, to enhance national capacities to detect and respond to these threats, and to learn from each other’s experiences as yet another step toward national health security for this and other countries.
