Description: The purpose of this NOFO is to continue strengthening Uganda’s capacities for rapid detection and effective and efficient response to health threats, and evidence-based prevention for the spread of epidemic-prone human and zoonotic diseases nationally and across borders, in compliance with International Health Regulations (IHR 2005). The focus of this NOFO is based on those gaps outlined by the 2017 Joint External Evaluation (JEE) of Uganda’s Global Health Security (GHS) capacities that still need to be addressed despite subsequent progress, including but not limited to: – surveillance, laboratory, rapid response and countermeasures for priority human and zoonotic diseases including antimicrobial resistance, food safety, water and environmental health- multi-hazard multi-sectoral preparedness in connection with Uganda’s National Action Plan for Health Security (NAPHS) – national legislation for, and operationalization of functional, real-time funding for health emergencies – establishing a national border health program- rolling out a functional electronic platform linking surveillance, laboratory, notification, emergency responses, reporting, and workforce tracking data related to human and zoonotic priority diseases, including antimicrobial resistance.
