A world free
from the threat of infectious diseases

Because
No One
is Immune.

For the past 15 years, a new infectious disease has been discovered nearly every year, with an outbreak reported on nearly every continent. These threats of pandemic diseases, food-borne illnesses, climate change, and global trade and transit underscore the importance of addressing the complexity of infectious diseases and public health preparedness. It requires more than collaboration.
