More than 70% of infectious disease is transmitted to humans from animals. Our national and international disease surveillance networks are putting life-saving discoveries into action, targeting major infectious diseases of animals that directly affect human health and economic development.
Our researchers work with the Washington Animal Disease Diagnostic Laboratory, one of 12 laboratories in the National Animal Health Laboratory Network providing ongoing disease surveillance and diagnostics during animal disease outbreaks in the U.S.
Internationally, our NGO Global Health – Kenya, works with partners to detect emerging infectious diseases in eastern and central Africa.
