 Join CDC’s efforts to stop the spread of emerging diseases worldwide

Today, CDC is announcing an international, five-year funding opportunity for partners with experience in healthcare infection detection and response, and/or antibiotic and antifungal resistance across the One Health spectrum. The deadline to submit proposals is June 28, 2021, at 11:59 p.m. ET. Read the Request For Proposal to apply.

This funding opportunity will help the agency establish two new global CDC networks—Global Action in Healthcare Network and Global Antimicrobial Resistance Laboratory & Response Network. Working together, these new global networks will enhance detection and response to infectious disease threats globally, and implement prevention and containment strategies at local, national, and regional levels.

Awardees will contribute to one or more of the following focus areas:

  • Improve detection and containment in healthcare settings for emerging threats, including antimicrobial resistance, COVID-19, and HAIs.
  • Detect, assess, and respond to antimicrobial resistance in healthcare settings, the community, and the environment, including enteric pathogens; fungal pathogens; invasive bacterial and respiratory pathogens; and N. gonorrhoeae
  • Surge capacity for responses to outbreaks in health care.

Recipients are encouraged to collaborate on the application with other organizations, including those funded and not funded by CDC.

All proposals must be received by June 28, 2021, at 11:59 p.m. ET.
