Emory University is a leading research university that fosters excellence and attracts world-class talent to innovate today and prepare leaders for the future. We welcome candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of our academic community.
The Task Force for Global Health (TFGH), founded nearly 40 years ago to advance health equity, works with partners in more than 150 countries to eliminate diseases, ensure access to vaccines and essential medicines, and strengthen health systems to protect populations. Expertise includes neglected tropical diseases and other infectious diseases; vaccine safety, distribution, and access; and health systems strengthening.
Our COVID-19 activities include providing vaccine safety guidelines; advising on digital contact tracing; training epidemiologists on disease surveillance and response; distributing essential protection and treatment to hard-hit communities; using existing health programs to ensure protection for vulnerable groups, such as those afflicted with other diseases; and leveraging our existing supply chains for ongoing response and to help countries deliver vaccines. For more information, visit www.taskforce.org.
The Center for Vaccine Equity (CVE) works on specific vaccine-preventable diseases, vaccine safety, vaccine hesitancy and implementing the necessary delivery systems so that vaccines are delivered to those who need them. CVE also serves as Secretariat for several global health partnerships that advance this mission.
For the last two decades, the Brighton Collaboration (BC) has built trust in the safety of vaccines through rigorous science. It does this by developing standards [e.g., case definitions for adverse events following immunization (AEFI)/of special interest (AESI)], guidance, protocols, tools and international monitoring approaches for globally harmonized safety assessment of human vaccines [e.g., those in the WHO Expanded Program on Immunizations (EPI), vaccines for pandemic use, and others under development].
