U.S. launches new global initiative to prevent infectious disease threats
Washington Post

Faced with what they describe as a perfect storm of converging threats from infectious disease epidemics, U.S. officials are launching a global effort Thursday with more than two dozen countries and international organizations to prevent deadly outbreaks from spreading.

The goal is to prevent, detect and respond to infectious disease threats where they start. That’s more effective and less costly than treating sick people after diseases spread.
