Description: In 2014, CDC-Ethiopia started supporting the Government of Ethiopia to build Ethiopia’s capacity to achieve the International Health Regulation (IHR) targets through implementing the Global Health Security Agenda. The initial roadmap was developed with multisector partners in 2015, and the multi-sector collaboration has proved successful as over 500 people have been trained in field epidemiology; a national public health emergency operations center exists for outbreak; and diagnostic and surveillance capacity has increased to respond to emerging disease threats. Ethiopia was the second country to conduct a joint external assessment (JEE) and has completed a costed National Action Plan for Health Security (NAPHS).
