Capacity building and preparedness  

University of Oxford led the creation of an online hub, REDe, aimed at knowledge sharing and supporting the establishment of a Latin-American and Caribbean network for emerging infectious diseases preparedness and response. The specific objectives pursued were:  


  • Establishing a regional network of excellence for research that shared knowledge, expertise and provides local support and training when and where needed 
  • Collaboration with regional and international networks to leverage synergies, share knowledge and identify and address regulatory bottlenecks 
  • Leveraging input and data from peer networks and research databases with the aim to speed up evidence generation and improve research efficiencies 
  • Developing a sustainability plan that will allow the network to continue beyond the funding period.
