Combating Infectious Diseases

In addition to addressing easily preventable illnesses, WHI also tackles the prevention and control of major disease outbreaks.

Whether that comes in the form of responding to disasters in order to prevent the outbreak of cholera; being first responders to the Ebola outbreak, or working within communities using social behavior change communication strategies to manage and mitigate disease outbreaks in the aftermath.

Responding to disease outbreaks can not only include initial action, but addressing the often devastating economic and psychological impact in the aftermath for years to come.
