VIRUSES MOVE FAST.
WE'LL MOVE FASTER.

COVID-19, HIV and hepatitis taught us that global collaboration is key to staying ahead of viral threats.

STAYING ONE STEP AHEAD OF THE NEXT VIRAL THREAT

 

We can't fight what we can't see coming. To stop history from repeating itself — and to protect our health, communities and economies — experts around the world are joining forces to stay one step ahead of the next viral threat.

 

Introducing the Abbott Pandemic Defense Coalition, the first industry-led global scientific and public health partnership dedicated to the early detection of and rapid response to future pandemic threats. Together, we're identifying, tracking, analyzing and testing emerging threats around the globe, including COVID-19 variants.
