Our Work

From sexually transmitted infections to outbreaks of Ebola, Zika and other viruses, communicable diseases are a major threat to the public’s health. We apply our expertise in research, leadership development, evaluation, capacity building and technological innovation to combat the spread of communicable disease in the U.S. and around the world.
