With the goal of enhancing the capacity of health systems to predict, prevent, and respond to emerging infectious diseases, the programme stands as a testament to the growing recognition of the interconnectedness of human, animal, and environmental health.

During the study visit, participants from G-WAC had the opportunity to engage with the researchers at KCCR, a renowned research institution known for its contributions to infectious disease research and diagnostics. The participants were exposed to cutting-edge research methodologies, state-of-the-art laboratory facilities, and insights into the pivotal role that collaborative research plays in advancing our understanding of infectious diseases and their prevention.

This collaboration between G-WAC and KCCR exemplifies the proactive steps being taken to build a healthier and more resilient global community, where professionals are equipped to anticipate, mitigate, and manage the challenges that lie ahead.
