NTI joins hundreds of government officials and experts from around the world during the 70th World Health Assembly (WHA) in Geneva, Switzerland this week to highlight the importance of health and security sector partnerships to counter biological threats and advance the Global Health Security Agenda.
Cameron, NTI’s Senior Director for Global Biological Policy and
Programs, briefed the Joint
External Evaluation (JEE) Alliance and the Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA) Steering
Group on the development of a Global
Health Security Index, which is aimed at spurring measurable, monitored,
and meaningful commitments across sectors to prevent, detect, and respond to
epidemic threats. Cameron also provided NTI’s perspective on the importance of
security and health sector collaboration during a side event focused on women
leaders in health security and will discuss NTI’s renewed focus on biosecurity during a meeting of
Partnership Against the Spread of Weapons and Materials of Mass Destruction Biological
Security Working Group.
