Emerging diseases, like severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and H1N1 influenza, and resurgent diseases, like cholera and tuberculosis, present significant challenges to public health and economies. CAMRIS works to address these challenges by collaborating with health partners at the local, national, and regional levels to prevent, detect, control, and reduce the burden of infectious diseases. We engage in activities to strengthen infectious disease surveillance and response, enhance capacity for epidemiologic investigations, expand laboratory detection and reporting, build the capacity of public health professionals, perform medical research and development, and develop and advance policies. Our research studies, clinical trials, and surveillance have focused on antimicrobial resistance, respiratory infections, HIV/AIDs, malaria, and zoonotic and vector-borne diseases, among others.
