The Good Work of the International Task Force on Disease Eradication

Measels virus

Virus that causes measels

With all the news about the outbreak of measels, we’d like to re-emphasize our support for the good work that the ITFDE is doing attempting to eradicate specific diseases worldwide.

GxPReady! would like to contribute to the eradication of targeted diseases identified by the International Task Force for Disease Eradication (ITFDE) and The Carter Center.

Smallpox was eradicated in 1977. This proves that it can be done.

The ITFDE was formed at the The Carter Center to improve the quality of life of many of the world’s poorest people by identifying specific diseases that could be eradicated. The ITFDE identified eight such candidate diseases and three additional diseases are identified by The Carter Center.

To support this work, GxPReady!, as part of a pilot program for a limited time, is offering use of GxPReady! Suite™ software to a limited number of facilities at substantially reduced or no cost where it can be used to support efforts to help eradicate and/or control these diseases in the most affected areas and where the applicable organization is providing support at no or reduced cost to the patient population.

If you or your organization are developing drugs, therapies, biotechnology, or devices that work toward the eradication of these diseases, or you are operating labs or support facilities that require tracking of calibration, maintenance, or validation activities, we would be happy to speak with you about what we can do to help.
