The USAID Emerging Pandemics Threats (EPT) Program, launched in 2009, encompasses numerous projects that all work towards strengthening global capacity for the prevention, detection, and control of infectious disease threats. From 2009 to 2014 the Cummings School was an implementing partner for one of these EPT projects, called RESPOND. Under RESPOND, Cummings experts, working alongside experts from the University of Minnesota, worked with faculty from 34 institutions of higher education across Africa and South East Asia to promote a One Health approach to addressing infectious disease threats and helped to create two regional One Health University Networks: the South East Asia One Health University Network (SEAOHUN), based in Thailand, and the One Health Central and East Africa (OHCEA) network, based in Uganda. Cummings experts continue to work with both SEAOHUN and OHCEA on the USAID-funded One Health Workforce (OHW) Project (Emerging Pandemic Threats 2), which began in 2014 and continues through 2019.
