Description: This NOFO supports implementation of programs focusing on protecting and improving health globally and further implementing Global Health Security (GHS) through partnership with Cameroon’s Directorate of Disease Control, Epidemics and Pandemics (DLMEP). Its purpose is to advance support for multi-sectoral engagement in human and animal health by sustaining strong health systems and resources needed for enhanced surveillance, preparedness efforts for outbreaks, public health emergencies and health threats. The three main strategic areas are prevent avoidable epidemics, detect threats early, and respond rapidly and effectively to potential events of concern for public health and health security. CDC will leverage DLMEP’s resources to promote national initiatives and frameworks that support International Health Regulations (IHR, 2005) core capacities: detect and reduce bio-threats, improve sharing of best practices, use relevant tools to promote health security, strengthen accountability and transparency of data sharing, and participate in regional and international health security initiatives. Outcomes include strengthening capacities to prevent, detect, and respond to potential events of concern for public health and health security and demonstrate improvement in at least 5 GHSA/IHR technical areas to a level of “Demonstrated Capacity” as measured by relevant health security assessment (i.e., World Health Organization (WHO)/IHR Monitoring and Evaluation Framework).
