Abstract : The DoD-Global Emerging Infections System (DoD-GEIS) was established in 1997 in response to Presidential Decision Directive NSTC-7 on emerging infections. The directive expanded the mission of the DoD to include support of global surveillance, training, research, and response to emerging infections disease threats. Core FY00 funding to implement the directive was $7.1 million, which was leveraged in many cases through additional support from the DoD regional unified commands and other federal agencies including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). DoD-GEIS activities occur in three primary settings: the Military Health System (MHS), the five DoD overseas medical research units, and various training, leadership, and capacity building partnerships with regional CINCs and other governmental and international agencies. Presidential Decision Directive NSTC-7 calls for implementing actions in several areas relevant to DoD-GEIS.
