The United States Center for Disease Control and Prevention will host a lecture by Director Dr. Tom Frieden at The American Center on Monday evening.
The lecture, which begins at 7 pm, will focus on how the world is both better prepared for and at greater risk from health threats than ever and what we can do about it.
U.S. Ambassador to India Richard Verma will make opening remarks and introduce Dr. Frieden.
Dr. Frieden's visit to New Delhi is focused on the ongoing collaborations between the Government of India's Health and Family Welfare and the U.S. CDC with the intent of discussing new initiatives as it relates to the global health security agenda.
The global health security agenda will highlight the need for each country to be prepared to address emerging infectious diseases such as Ebola.
There will be a question and answer session after Dr. Frieden's talk, the U.S. Embassy said in a statement.
