Metrics for success and quantifiable results.
GVP will improve the speed, scope and efficiency of outbreak response, strengthen surveillance and lab networks and pave the way for new tools for diagnosis, prevention and treatment of disease.
The result will be a dramatic increase in data for wildlife conservation, which will create opportunities for follow-up research in virology, diagnostics, therapeutics, epidemiology, ecology, prevention and behavior change and intervention. Our teams will develop best practices for viral handling, storage and containment and we will train a cohort to become the next generation of health professionals.
The Global Virome Project will also create opportunities to improve legal, regulatory and policy frameworks for global health surveillance and biodiversity.
