Our general objective is to strengthen equitable and responsive public health systems that leverage Southern-led responsible AI solutions to improve prevention, preparedness, and response to emerging and re-emerging infectious disease outbreaks.

Specific objectives are to:
1. Deepen the understanding of how to use responsible AI solutions to improve public health preparedness and response to emerging and re-emerging infectious disease outbreaks.
2. Establish and support a multi-regional network across the Global South to address gaps in knowledge, capacities, and solutions.
3. Inform national, regional, and global policies and practices on the use of AI to improve health equity and strengthen public health systems.
