What is global health security?

“Global health security is a state of freedom from the scourge of infectious disease, irrespective of origin or source. It is achieved through the policies, programmes, and activities taken to prevent, detect, respond to, and recover from biological threats… These threats know no borders and have global consequences requiring more effective collective action.” – From The Sydney Statement on Global Health Security, 2019
