CRDF Global Supports GHSA Consortium's Commitment to Combatting the Spread of COVID-19

Monday, July 27, 2020

CRDF Global proudly stands behind the Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA) Consortium's commitment to combatting the spread of COVID-19 and mitigating its health, social, and economic impacts. As a member of the GHSA Consortium Steering Group, we are actively partnering with governments, local institutions, and research organizations to build capacities to prevent, detect, and respond to infectious disease threats and emerging outbreaks.

“Pandemics can be prevented - but not by any single sector or government acting alone. CRDF Global and the GHSA Consortium are proud to support GHSA with our commitments -- to help countries and civil society and private sector partners take practical steps to strengthen the human and animal health systems that prevent emerging disease threats from becoming catastrophes,” says Dr. Julie Fischer, CRDF Global Technical Advisor and Chair of the Global Health Security Agenda Consortium.
