    civil society to accelerate progress toward a world safe and secure from infectious disease threats; to promote global health security as an international priority; and to spur progress toward full implementation of the World Health Organization (WHO) International Health Regulations 2005 (IHR), the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) Performance of Veterinary Services (PVS) pathway, and other relevant global health security frameworks.

    In order to encourage progress toward these goals, the “Action Packages” concept was developed to facilitate regional and global collaboration toward specific GHSA objectives and targets. Following the May 2014 GHSA Commitment Development meeting in Helsinki countries identified eleven discrete GHSA Action Packages, which were discussed further at the August 2014 Global Infectious Diseases Meeting in Jakarta. All countries that support the GHSA are welcome to participate in one or more Action Packages and are asked to consider specific commitments across these areas on a national, regional, or global basis.

    The 11 Action Packages in this document have been agreed upon by Action Package leaders and contributing countries, with the understanding that they may be changed or added to over time. Technical experts from countries around the world have worked collaboratively over the past months to shape these Action Packages and will continue to lead and implement them following the GHSA meeting at the White House on September 26, 2014. As of this date, 39 countries have committed to contribute to the Action Packages, and others are encouraged to join as the GHSA moves forward. In developing these Action Packages, the goal has been to translate political support into action and to recruit countries to join in working to achieve GHSA objectives.

    These Action Packages are being publicly released at this stage to further increase understanding and encourage entities outside of government to take part in the GHSA as part of a whole-of-society approach. We encourage non-governmental stakeholders—including foundations, development banks and non-governmental organizations—to contribute to the development and implementation of these Action Packages.
