The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is seeking applications for funding for Global Health Security Partner Enhancement: Expanding Efforts and Strategies to Protect and Improve Public Health in Senegal.
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’ where it is possible to prevent or mitigate the impact of naturally occurring outbreaks and intentional or accidental releases of dangerous pathogens, rapidly detect and transparently report outbreaks when they occur, and employ an interconnected global network that can respond effectively to limit the spread of infectious disease outbreaks in humans and animals, mitigate human suffering and the loss of human life, and reduce economic impact.
In support of the CDC’s global health security responsibilities, this funding opportunity will contribute to two priority strategies in Senegal: (1) strengthening surveillance system for Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) threat and (2) strengthening national laboratory system to respond to public health emergencies. The key strategy-specific activities to be employed include (1) increase geographic coverage and expand maximum load of the specimen referral network; (2) improvement of Biosecurity of medical laboratories; (3) strengthening of laboratory equipment management; (4) improvement of access to and participation in national and international quality assurance programs and proficiency testing; (5) strengthening AMR surveillance system.
