Disclosure statement:

Qualified on the content I am responsible for because: I am a medical doctor / epidemiologist working at the CDCís Global Immunization Division (GID) since 2000 on issues related with global vaccine-preventable disease control with emphasis on the global measles control and the efforts to eliminate measles and rubella in several regions of the world, including Europe and the Americas. As an alumna of the CDCís Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) program in the EIS class of 1998, I have been responsible for teaching and mentoring of the subsequent classes of EIS officers both as the primary and secondary supervisor. In addition, I have been teaching in a number of other CDC-supported programs, including the ongoing trainings for the Stop Transmission of Polio (STOP) volunteers. I currently serve as the Science, Policy and Research Coordinator for the GIDís Disease Elimination and Eradication Branch, and in that capacity I lead and coordinate Branchí efforts to develop and implement policies and strategies relevant for achieving the global and regional vaccine-preventable disease control goals and to establish research and evaluation agenda in collaboration with external partners, including World Health Organization and Pan-American Health Organization.
