The German Federal Ministry of Health's Global Protection Programme

As part of its international commitments, Germany is providing partner countries with increasing support with outbreaks and the development of reliable healthcare systems. To this end, the Federal Ministry of Health (BMG) has launched a Global Health Protection Programme (GHPP) to improve international health. The main focus is providing partner countries with support with the development of steps for the prevention of epidemics. The Robert Koch Institute supports the programme on various fields, e.g. in building capacities for tackling outbreak situations, strengthening primary healthcare systems, implementing the International Health Regulations, and combatting antimicrobial resistance. Apart from RKI, the Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices, the Bernhard-Nocht-Institute for Tropical Medicine, and the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut participate in this programme.
