In the wake of the recent Ebola crisis we have seen a flurry of follow-up activities. Over the past year, the World Health Organization, multilateral organizations, and many countries have taken measures to strengthen global, regional, and national capacities in pandemic preparedness and response.
To advance the dialogue on global health security, the Graduate Institute of Geneva, the U.S. National Academy of Medicine and the Center for Global Health and Diplomacy will host a discussion alongside the 69th Annual World Health Assembly in Geneva, Switzerland.
Making It Work – Strengthening Global Health Security After Ebola will provide updates on new and emerging initiatives to support global, regional, and country-level efforts; identify the ongoing challenges that hinder governments’ and partners’ ability to achieve global health security; and examine the importance of collaboration across sectors and the engagement of non-state actors, particularly the private sector.
