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. 

Successfully combatting infectious diseases in the long run and protecting vulnerable communities means anticipating outbreaks in health hotspots, laying preventative measures in place in known disaster zones, and working within and alongside communities to build healthy habits and understanding.

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.
