The University of Washington Alliance for Pandemic Preparedness (formerly called the MetaCenter for Pandemic Preparedness and Global Health Security) offers a proactive approach to pandemics that addresses the root causes of pandemic risk and accelerates effective action by working with partners in low and middle-income countries (LMICs) to achieve sustainable impact at large scale. The Alliance builds on the resources of our incredible scientific community and the leadership role that the University of Washington has taken in response to COVID-19 at local, national and international levels.
