The recent coronavirus outbreak brings health security back to the top of the policy agenda.
- Is your government or organisation ready to deal with this challenge?
- How can we improve outbreak prevention and response at the national, regional and global levels?
- How should we strengthen detection strategies? Why is a multi-sectoral response to major public health incidents crucial?
This executive course answers these questions and provides security and health specialists from all sectors with an in-depth analysis of global health security as an international security priority. It equips participants with the tools necessary to deal with the security challenges that health crises can pose at all levels.
