Description: The U.S. government’s (USG) Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA) envisions a world safe and secure from global health threats posed by infectious diseases. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is assisting the Governments globally to meet key International Health Regulations (IHR) (2005) requirements through the implementation of the GHSA. CDC seeks to partner with the Georgian Ministry of Agriculture, through a cooperative agreement in a collaborative effort to achieve specific goals in three focus areas of the GHSA specifically: 1. workforce capacity development through FELTP, 2. the “One Health” approach through coordination and collaboration, and 3. Laboratory system strengthening. The proposals funded through the cooperative agreement will respond to Zoonotic Disease Prevention of the GHSA by supporting the Georgian National Animal Health Plan, expanding and updating a cadre of the workforce and training of public health veterinarians to work with epidemiologists and laboratorians in the context of evidence-based timely detection and response, and adapting the One Health approach with the expected outcomes of stopping the diseases in animals before they spill-over into humans and strengthening the current surveillance system.
