US unveils strategy to detect and respond to health security threats globally

Representational PIC
The United States government has come up with a first of its kind strategy to prevent, detect and respond to threats from infectious diseases occurring naturally or accidentally, in an effort to help improve the world's ability to stop and contain deadly outbreaks before they spread between countries.

The Global Health Security Strategy, unveiled on Thursday, defines the actions the US administration will take by adopting a whole-of-government approach to health security and leveraging the strengths of different federal departments, agencies and funding streams. 

A senior administration official told reporters after the strategy was released by the White House, that their National Security Strategy specifically identifies combating biological threats and pandemics as a cornerstone of national security. 

Biological threats, like infectious disease outbreaks, are a national security priority. 

The strategy outlines a coordinated US approach that focuses on three interrelated goals: strengthen partner country global health security capacities, increase international support for global health security and a homeland prepared and resilient against global health threats, the official said.


The White House said that the US is working with international partners to help improve the world's ability to stop and contain infectious disease outbreaks before they spread between countries.
