Emory and US CDC partner to continue building global public health network with $6 million grant
Date:12/16/2011

Emory University's Global Health Institute has received a three-year, $6 million grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to further develop a model for strengthening national public health institutes (NPHIs) globally. The grant will build upon a previous foundation grant to the International Association of National Public Health Institutes (IANPHI), which since 2006 has created or substantially increased capacity at NPHIs in 10 low-resource countries.

Under the new grant, IANPHI, through its Secretariat at the Emory Global Health Institute, will collaborate with the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in three-year capacity building projects in four low-resource countries, to be named later this year.

In the process, IANPHI technical assistance methods and model for NPHI capacity building will be transferred to the CDC, with the intent that they be sustained over time as part of its future global health capacity building efforts. It is anticipated that other IANPHI members will use the jointly developed model, seeking out funding to undertake capacity building projects in partnership with IANPHI.

"We are grateful to the Gates Foundation for its strong commitment to IANPHI's project work through its international community of public health institutes, which since 2006 has used a peer-assistance model to strengthen national capacity to respond to health threats," says Dr. Jeffrey Koplan, vice president for global health at Emory, IANPHI president, and principal investigator for the new grant.

"We live in an increasingly interconnected society, and the public health issues of one country can quickly affect the entire world. It's important to think globally not only about public health problems, but also about developing and disseminating public health solutions. Because health risks are global, ineffective disease detection and response systems in one country can weaken the world."
