  • Description:
    The Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA) is a multi-sectoral and multilateral e ort that was launched in 2014 to accelerate progress toward compliance

    with the International Health Regulations (IHR)

    (2005), the World Organization for Animal Health’s Performance of Veterinary Services, the Biological Weapons Convention, and other relevant international frameworks and agreements. The IHR (2005) is a legally binding instrument adopted by 196 WHO Member States that sets requirements for each to prepare for health emergencies of all types. The vision of the GHSA is to achieve a world safe and secure from infectious disease threats, whether naturally occurring, accidental, or deliberately released. GHSA seeks to leverage

    host government and donor partner investments to reduce morbidity, mortality, and economic loss by preventing avoidable infectious disease outbreaks, detecting threats early, and responding rapidly and e ectively to outbreaks when they occur. GHSA advances IHR (2005) compliance by providing specific, measurable targets across the 11 technical areas, referred to as “Action Packages,” and supporting step-by-step plans to promote their achievement.
