The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) / Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) has announced a call for proposals for the Global Healthcare Detection and Response.
This NOFO will enhance detection and response to infectious disease threats in healthcare facilities globally by developing networks to implement prevention and containment strategies at local, national, and regional levels. Interventions to prevent, detect, and respond to infectious disease threats in healthcare, including AMR, HAIs, and COVID-19, will be developed and implemented within networks. The NOFO will also improve the detection of emerging AMR and identify AMR risk factors and prevention strategies across healthcare and the community to inform global AMR containment efforts.
