Co-Convened by: Management Sciences for Health (MSH), Global Health Council (GHC), Global Health Security Agenda Consortium (GHSAC), Resolve to Save Lives, PATH, Vital Strategies, Devex and the Global Health Technologies Coalition (GHTC)

Protecting the world from infectious disease threats requires that national governments share the responsibility of serving those most in need, but how do countries prioritize their investments in a rapidly changing world?

On the margins of the 71st World Health Assembly, this event will convene global and national leaders for a discussion on how investments in global health security strengthen public health systems, promote universal health coverage, and drive economic growth and local research and development. This event will outline the best case for investment in health security, explore how to scale up innovative programming at the country level, and provide recommendations on increasing country ownership and domestic buy-in for health security.
