No More Epidemics is a five year global campaign to encourage governments and key stakeholders to better prevent, prepare and respond to infectious disease epidemics. Established in 2015 by Management Sciences for Health (MSH), International Medical Corps (IMC), Save the Children (SC), and the African Field Epidemiology Network (AFENET) the Campaign was officially launched in November, 2015 in South Africa.
Our 26 current partners include civil society organisations, community-based organisations, private sector companies and academic institutions all working together to hold governments accountable to prioritize epidemic prevention, preparedness and response planning. No More Epidemics goals are to:
- Ensure the development of national preparedness plans that include community protection and mitigation.
- Ensure all States comply with the International Health Regulations (IHR).
- Increase international and national funding levels for epidemic preparedness, prevention and response.
