To protect people’s health from epidemics and disasters and ensure that communities are resilient to major challenges.
About the Center
The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security explores how new policy approaches, scientific advances, and technological innovations can strengthen health security and save lives.
Our research focuses on improving organizations, systems, and tools to prevent and respond to outbreaks and other public health crises. We advance policies and practice addressing diverse challenges, including the global rise in emerging infectious diseases, a continued risk of pandemic flu, major natural disasters, and the potential for biological accidents or intentional threats. Interdisciplinary and international collaborations with other experts and policymakers improve and inform our work.
Our mission is to protect people’s health from epidemics and disasters and ensure that communities are resilient to major challenges.
