Global Health Security Agenda Ministerial Meeting in Uganda

Focus areas:

Global Health Security

Emerging Infectious Diseases and Epidemics

The Center is partnering with the Georgetown Center for Global Health Science and Security to host a panel discussion on benefits of and strategies for incorporating the non-governmental sector into the next phase of the Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA). The panel discussion will take place at the GHSA Ministerial Meeting in Uganda in October 2017.

GHSA is an international initiative to advance a world safe and secure from infectious disease threats, to bring together nations from all over the world to make new, concrete commitments, and to elevate global health security as a national leaders-level priority. It was launched as a 5-year effort in 2014 and has grown to include nearly 50 nations, international organizations, and non-governmental stakeholders. Planning is already underway for its next phase, and the Center hopes key takeaways from the panel discussion will inform decision making on future GHSA priorities—specifically, how the non-governmental sector (e.g., academic researchers, non-profits, philanthropies, and private-sector organizations) can contribute to growing GHSA’s momentum and achievements to date.
