The USAID funded PREDICT project enabled global surveillance of pathogens that can spillover from animal hosts to people by building capacities to detect and discover viruses of pandemic potential. The project was part of USAID's Emerging Pandemic Threats program and was led by the UC Davis One Health Institute. The core project partners were USAID, Wildlife Conservation Society, EcoHealth Alliance, Metabiota, and Smithsonian Institution. Details on PREDICT's global impact, news, updates, publications, video highlights and training materials can be found on University of California Davis' dedicated website.

In the first phase of the project (2009-2014), WCS led PREDICT in Vietnam, Cambodia, Lao PDR, Republic of Congo, Peru and Bolivia. In PREDICT-2 (2014-2019) we concentrated our efforts in Vietnam, focusing on wildlife farms, and Mongolia, with targeted avian influenza surveillance in wild birds.
