No More Epidemics Steering Committee is comprised of Management Sciences for Health, Save the Children, International Medical Corps, and the African Field Epidemiology Network (AFENET). Together, the Steering Committee works closely to ensure the campaign is represented at the global and country levels, participates in conversations around global health security and infectious diseases, and contributes to advocating for a world safer from epidemic threats.
Management Sciences For Health
Management Sciences for Health (MSH) works with health leaders throughout the world on global health’s biggest challenges, with a focus on HIV & AIDS, TB, malaria, chronic diseases, family planning, and maternal and child health. Together with our partners, we work toward a shared vision of universal health coverage—accessible, affordable, appropriate health services for all—through stronger health systems.
African Field Epidemiology Network
African Field Epidemiology Network (AFENET) is a network of public health training institutions in Africa that seeks to strengthen manpower to enhance health systems on the continent. AFENET is a not-for-profit organization which works closely with Ministries of Health in member countries to develop sustainable programs and capacity to strengthen field epidemiology and ensure healthier lives for Africans.
International Medical Corps
A global first responder, International Medical Corps‘ mission since its inception over 30 years ago, has been consistent: relieve the suffering of those impacted by war, natural disaster and disease, by delivering vital health care services that focus on training. This approach of helping people help themselves is critical to returning devastated populations to self-reliance. International Medical Corps has been treating Ebola patients in West Africa since its first Ebola Treatment Unit in Bong County, Liberia, opened on September 15, 2014. In total, the organization has more than 1,550 staff working on the ground in West Africa for the Ebola response. A recognized expert on building local capacity to prepare for and respond to disasters, International Medical Corps has partnered with USAID on large-scale preparedness efforts, including PREPARE, a three-year project to strengthen the human capacity of countries to identify and respond to outbreaks in a timely and sustainable manner.
Save the Children
Save the Children is the world’s leading independent organization for children. We work in around 120 countries. We save children’s lives; we fight for their rights; we help them fulfil their potential. We work to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives. Across all of our work, we pursue several core values: accountability, ambition, collaboration, creativity and integrity.
