"Over the next five years the United States commits to working with at least 30 partner countries (containing at least 4 billion people) to prevent, detect and effectively respond to infectious disease threats, whether naturally-occurring or caused by accidental or intentional releases of dangerous pathogens. We call on other countries to join in this effort to realize the vision of a world where all 7 billion people are effectively protected against infectious disease threats. We will work with partner countries on specific objectives to prevent, detect and effectively respond to infectious disease threats, and will measure our own progress through the following metrics and milestones." This document focuses on prevention, detection, and response to public health emergencies.
