Additional Information:
“The Emergency Response and Recovery Branch (ERRB) has a longstanding commitment to building public health capacity globally during—and after—humanitarian emergencies like war, famine, civil strife, natural disaster, genocide, and displacement. Our experts travel the world to work with populations affected by emergencies.”

“The branch is responsible for implementing and coordinating CDC’s responses to international complex humanitarian emergencies, as requested by the U.S. government, United Nations agencies, and non-governmental organizations. Our Health Systems Recovery Team responds to post-emergency situations and supports countries without basic public health systems whenever and wherever we are needed.”
