About EPaPP

The Epidemic and Pandemic Preparedness Program (EPaPP) aims to understand the landscape of preparedness in the MENA region to inform and develop contextualized solutions for current and future epidemics and pandemics. EPaPP builds on the expertise available at AUB and leverages existing capacities across the region to foster regional and global partnerships and networks around epidemic and pandemic preparedness.

 

The EPaPP generates contextualized evidence, enhances workforce capacity, fosters collaborations, strengthens information systems, and applies a gender equality lens in order to improve equitable and responsive epidemic and pandemic preparedness in the MENA region.
