What we do

Global Health

Creating a safer world by improving global health

CRDF Global works with both global and regional partners to prevent, detect, investigate, and mitigate global health threats worldwide.

We strengthen systems from the national to the local level that are critical to: 

  • Prevent, detect, and respond effectively to emerging disease risks and threats 
  • Improve preparedness to create resilient health systems 
  • Conduct research to find innovative solutions to health challenges 

CRDF Global partners with governments, research institutions, universities, international organizations, the private sector, and local organizations to strengthen health systems for global health security. Our multisectoral and scalable approaches promote collaborative partnerships and country-led solutions for sustainability and self-reliance.

Strategic Areas

CRDF Global supports a risk-based approach to preventing and mitigating the accidental or deliberate spread of pathogens from laboratories to human and animal populations by strengthening policies, plans, and programs.

CRDF Global helps governments and their partners to plan to effectively implement the International Health Regulations (2005), Biological Weapons Convention, and other international agreements.

CRDF Global strengthens systems to detect and reduce the risk of zoonotic disease spillover and spread, using a One Health approach to improve early warning, timely data sharing, laboratory testing, and joint outbreak response capacities across the human health, animal health, environment, and wildlife sectors.

CRDF Global uses evidence-based approaches to strengthen national systems to prevent, detect, and control the growing threat of AMR through laboratory based surveillance and infection prevention and control.

CRDF Global supports tiered, integrated laboratory networks for health service delivery and detection of priority diseases rapidly, reliably, accurately, and safely.

CRDF Global strengthens the national systems and human capital needed to detect and monitor infectious diseases and use surveillance data for action.

CRDF Global enhances capacities to respond effectively to health emergencies, from establishing and operationalizing Emergency Operation Centers to planning, training, and exercising.

CRDF Global enables researchers to collaborate and solve problems. We provide project management, financial management, education, and grants management assistance to individual researchers, national research institutions, and global research networks to advance global health research.
