Authors: Ellen P. Carlin, Catherine Machalaba, Franck C.J. Berthe, Kanya C. Long & William B. Karesh
This work presents a framework for rethinking global health security in a way that captures, under a single umbrella, functional areas requiring inputs from the healthcare and public health, animal health, agriculture, environmental, law enforcement and counterterrorism, defense, and disaster risk reduction sectors. It also explicitly considers functions needed to defend against events regardless of their source, whether intentional or unintentional.
