The coronavirus outbreak has brought health security back to the top of the policy agenda for over two years. The potential of another pandemic is looming, and we still need to address existing health security challenges
How can we improve outbreak prevention and response at the national, regional and global levels?
How should we strengthen detection strategies? Why is a multi-sectoral response to major public health incidents crucial?
This executive course answers these questions and provides security and health specialists from all sectors 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.
A mix of lectures and interactive sessions will provide you with knowledge and improve your skills to tackle the upcoming health security challenges.
The course will enable you to:
- Strengthen awareness of global health security threats;
- Understand how trends in other sectors can "spill-over" and impact health security;
