Outbreak Investigation Workshops and Especially Dangerous Pathogen clinical trainings

IG has extensive experience in supporting Global Health Security in high-risk low- and middle-income countries. We have developed a multisectoral Outbreak Investigation Workshop and a clinician-oriented Especially Dangerous Pathogens training workshop to expand efforts for quick diagnosis and better coordination. A tabletop model is used to support human and vet clinicians, public health professionals, and laboratorians in connecting the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration and systems activation. These training events result in improved surveillance, increased speed of differential diagnosis and clinical symptom identification, and teach epidemiologic principles that mitigate outbreaks as they arise.
