Abstract
Recent infectious disease epidemics illustrate how health systems failures anywhere can create disease vulnerabilities everywhere. We must therefore prioritize investments in health care infrastructure in outbreak-prone regions of the world. We describe how “rooted” research collaborations can establish capacity for pathogen surveillance and facilitate rapid outbreak responses.
