WHO Communicable Diseases Working Group on Emergencies
DCE coordinates the WHO Communicable Diseases Working Group on Emergencies (CD-WGE), which includes WHO experts across many departments on relevant diseases.
The CD-WGE provides expert advice for the development of guidelines and training material, and helps set standards and prioritize interventions for communicable diseases in acute and protracted humanitarian emergencies.
DCE also develops and maintains interagency partnerships with a range of humanitarian agencies in order to enhance technical coordination of communicable disease interventions in emergencies. Partners include NGOs, UN agencies, international organizations, universities, technical Institutions and various donors.
