The Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA) was launched in February 2014 and is a growing partnership of over 50 nations, international organizations, and non-governmental stakeholders to help build countries’ capacity to help create a world secure from infectious disease threats. GHSA acknowledges the essential need for a multilateral and multi-sectoral approach to strengthen both the global capacity and nations' capacity to prevent, detect, and respond to infectious diseases threats.  This session will review the successes and limitations of GHSA in its efforts to strengthen both the global capacity and nations’ capacity to prevent, detect, and respond to human and animal infectious diseases threats whether naturally occurring or accidentally or deliberately spread.
