Abstract

For 20 years, the Global Outbreak Response and Alert Network (GOARN) has been a leader in the coordination of international outbreak response. On the premise that no single institution can provide all capacities required to successfully respond to a complex public health emergency or fulfil all outbreak response training needs, GOARN embarked on a capacity building journey that draws on the unique strengths of more than 250 partner institutions. Through extensive engagement and collaboration, GOARN Partners have created a bespoke, multifaceted, 3-tiered training programme which has evolved over the last 15 years and enhanced the competencies of thousands of multidisciplinary outbreak responders around the world.
