Published Date:February 18, 2016

Description:The Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA) is accelerating progress toward a world safe and secure from infectious disease threats.
• Prevent epidemics, including naturally-occurring outbreaks and intentional or accidental biological releases
• Detect, characterize, and report emerging biological threats early
• Respond rapidly and effectively to biological threats of international concern
The Ebola epidemic in West Africa has shown the difference established, critical health and public health systems can make. The substantial health investment in Nigeria ensured that Lagos could address the outbreak there and stop it before it became part of the larger West Africa epidemic. CDC is committed to working with federal and other partners to implement GHSA activities and accelerate progress toward a world safe and secure from disease threats.
