Global Health Security
Global health security is a top priority for the United States, as well as the international community. Infectious disease outbreaks can devastate communities and have far-reaching negative impacts on economic growth, political instability, and achieving international development goals.
MSH works with countries and communities to help them deliver high-quality health services that meet the unique health needs of vulnerable populations, while also making sure that communities, health managers, and country leaders are able to prevent, detect, prepare for, and respond to potential outbreaks.
This requires comprehensive, resilient primary health care services and systems with working components: strong leadership, engaged communities, labs and hospitals, pharmaceutical systems and supply chains, and disease surveillance systems.
