Connect with Fogarty
NIH and its global partners are supporting multiple studies to pave the way for treatments and vaccines for MERS
Fogarty and NIH are committed to improving global health security by building the capacity of countries to address public health threats, health emergencies and infectious disease outbreaks.
Scientists world-wide must work together to stop epidemics early and at the source. Programs supported by Fogarty develop infectious disease research capacity, provide training in countries with little or no infrastructure, and link scientists to a global network of experts. The training provided to health care workers, doctors and researchers requires a relatively modest investment, but could provide the tools countries need to halt disease outbreaks in their tracks, possibly preventing the need for large-scale emergency efforts like the ones assembled to fight recent Ebola and Zika virus outbreaks.
The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) leads
NIH infectious disease research, included research related to
biodefense and emerging infectious diseases.
