In the wake of the 2014 West African Ebola outbreak, the
international spread of Zika, the ongoing transmission of
antimicrobial resistance, and the ever-present threat of another
influenza pandemic, global health security has taken on a new level
of importance. Multiple commissions and high-level panels have been
held, recommendations have been issued, and governments,
international organisations, civil society and private industry
have all committed to various initiatives aimed at improving health
outcomes. Even so, significant challenges remain.
Realisation of a global vision for health security is very
much part of the agenda for the inaugural Global Health Security
2019 Conference being held in Sydney 18 - 20 June.
