How can we improve outbreak prevention and response, as well as biosecurity and biosafety measures at the national, regional and global levels?
How should we strengthen detection strategies and national laboratory systems? Why is a multi-sectoral response to biological incidents crucial? This executive programme answers these and other questions, providing security and health specialists with an in-depth analysis of global health security as an international security priority. It equips participants with the tools necessary to deal with the security challenges that health crises can pose at all levels. Participants explore and evaluate frameworks and implementation measures that will enable them to better prevent, detect, and combat health security emergencies.
Leaders are expected to formulate policies for best practices and strategies for dealing with future health contexts and crisis scenarios. This programme provides an opportunity to learn the basics of current health practices, policies, implementation schemes, and approaches for the road ahead. Throughout the programme, participants will examine emerging health challenges and their governance implications. They will work together to understand and devise ways to mitigate potential health threats.
The programme is primarily aimed at government officials. It also seeks to engage the private and civil society sector, since a multi-stakeholder approach is often required to address health security challenges.
