Infectious Diseases & Global Health Security
Combatting Infectious Diseases and Advancing Global Health Security
COVID-19 is just the latest challenge to expose the vulnerability of human lives and livelihoods. Influenza, HIV, Malaria, TB, and Ebola; climate change and natural disaster; economic and housing insecurity; political unrest and migration–all are daily challenges to health systems and community resilience. Around the world, Abt works to counter these threats to our shared global health security. How? Evidence-based prevention and containment; groundbreaking disease detection and surveillance; and total-health-system surge and recovery response stewarded by local government and community leaders. Despite the many potential hazards, governments and communities are making progress toward collective health security. Abt stands with global communities to continue this progress.
