READY II: Global consortium strengthening NGO preparedness for large-scale infectious disease epidemics and pandemics that become international humanitarian emergencies
READY is a global consortium designed to strengthen capacity for response to major infectious disease outbreaks or pandemics by filling critical gaps in outbreak response capacity and capability. It does this by leveraging expertise and best practices across these operational, academic, clinical, and communications organizations. By diversifying NGO capacity in coordination with other global outbreak initiatives, READY will strive to improve the humanitarian community’s response to infectious disease outbreaks that become international humanitarian emergencies, and even prevent many from ever becoming global. The program will also design and roll-out a multi-sectoral response approach that seeks to address the holistic needs of outbreak-affected communities – with community engagement and communications at the heart of the program design.
