Center for Global Healthcare Special Pathogens Preparedness

About Us

The NYC Health + Hospitals Center for Global Healthcare Special Pathogens Preparedness advances and strengthens special pathogens preparedness and response efforts of urban healthcare delivery systems globally via experience-based approaches.

As the largest municipal healthcare delivery system in the United States and with our unique experiences in safely and successfully treating NYC’s single, confirmed case of Ebola virus disease and numerous persons under investigation, we understand first-hand the myriad impacts pandemics and special pathogens incidents have on healthcare delivery.

With the increasing demand for preparedness for and responses to the world’s emerging public health threats and impacts on healthcare delivery, our Center breaks new ground and leads the way in serving as a distinctive international resource for healthcare delivery systems worldwide.
