Researchers from the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security participated in the Global Health Security 2019 conference in Sydney, Australia, June 18-20. The Center, based at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, works to protect people’s health from epidemics and disasters and ensure that communities are resilient to major challenges.
The conference convened for the first time via an international platform of stakeholders working in global health security to measure progress, determine gaps and identify new opportunities to enhance national, regional and global health security.
Center faculty presented new research on global health security solutions. Among those presenting were Ms. Diane Meyer, managing senior analyst, and Dr. Monica Schoch-Spana, senior scholar. In one panel Ms. Meyer provided an overview of a checklist created by the Center for Health Security and discussed how it aims to define the capacities needed by health systems to mount an effective response to an outbreak or natural hazard.Friday Letter Submission, Publish on June 28
