Supporting Cooperative Programs on Infectious Diseases
CRDF Global teamed up with the National Institutes of Health’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) to support the U.S.-Japan Cooperative Medical Sciences Program 22nd International Conference on Emerging Infectious Diseases by providing planning, logistics, and program management support.
The program’s objectives included scientific exchange, building networks, fostering relationships with scientists and government officials from the U.S., Japan, and the Asia-Pacific region, as well as exploring future opportunities for collaboration
Enhancing Global Health Security
In 2020, CRDF Global expanded its strategic efforts in global health security with new work acquired through the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the Central Asia Region, South and Southeast Asia Region, and Middle East-North African Region to enhance regional and national preparedness to prevent, detect, and respond to COVID-19 and other health threats.
As part of that work, CDRF Global, along with its partners, designed, developed, and renovated space in Tajikistan and Uzbekistan to create Public Health Emergency Operations Centers (PHEOC). These PHEOCs were the first ever in these countries and greatly enhance their abilities to respond to public health emergencies.
Expanding International Research Collaborations to Fight COVID-19
In 2020, CRDF Global awarded funds to four international research teams to further global knowledge on preventing, detecting, and responding to COVID-19. Under the auspices of the e-ASIA Research Program, researchers from the U.S. and East and Southeast Asia are collaborating to foster the development of diagnostics, therapeutics, preventive strategies, and effective vaccination against COVID-19 – all while strengthening multilateral collaborations among their countries.
