This image depicts the interior of the Global Disease Detection Center (GDDC) inside Guatemala's Emergency Operations Center (EOC), located on the Universidad del Valle de Guatemala (UVG) campus in the country’s capital, Guatemala City. In this view, you’re able to see the bank of laptop computers on a centrally-located table, each displaying the words “Emergency Operations Center, CDC CAR Guatemala”. CDC CAR is an acronym for Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Central America Regional Office.
Additional Information:
“The GDDC for Central America serves eight countries in the region. Primary partners are the Ministries of Health, national laboratories, the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), UVG’s Center for Health Studies, and other multilateral organizations, nongovernmental institutions, and multiple U.S. government agencies.”
