Shifts in Global Health Security: Lessons from Ebola
Tuesday, September 29, 2015 at 1pm EDT
Global health security is the protection of the health of people and societies worldwide. With diseases a plane ride or border crossing away, the importance of global health security has never been clearer. Patterns of global travel and trade pose greater opportunities for infectious diseases to emerge and spread nearly anywhere within 24 hours. The Ebola epidemic in West Africa, which has infected more than 28,000 people across 10 countries and has caused more than 11,200 deaths, highlights the importance of ensuring that every country is prepared to prevent, detect, and respond to outbreaks and emerging health threats.
We have also seen an emergence and spread of new infectious threats and a rise of drug resistance in microbes. In the wake of Ebola, it is clear that every nation must undertake public health surveillance and support basic public health infrastructure.
