Amman- April 8th - To mark World Health Day on April 7th, the Children's Museum Jordan opened a special temporary exhibit under the title of “Outbreak: Epidemics in a Connected World” which is an exhibition created by the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History (NMNH) in Washington, D.C. The Exhibit will be open to the public till the end of Dec.2019.

The main message of the exhibit is “One Health— the importance of interdisciplinary responses to stop disease outbreak and the impact those outbreaks have on communities”. The Museum coordinated with the U.S. Embassy to bring local content to the exhibit, which will feature USAID’s PREDICT-2 – Jordan Project. PREDICT-2 Project is a USAID activity implemented by Jordanian scientists of the Jordan University for Science and Technology to identify new emerging infectious diseases that could become a threat to human health in Jordan.

The Outbreak exhibition project is a collaborative effort between the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History and global partners to raise awareness of the human, animal, and environmental factors contributing to infectious disease epidemics.

The Children’s Museum Jordan is a non-profit educational institution launched by Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah in 2007. In its Exhibit Hall and Outdoor Area, the Museum houses more than 180 interactive scientific exhibits and educational facilities, including the Library, Art Studio, Tinker Lab and Secret Garden; and offers year-round educational programs, events and shows.
