Description

Health emergencies around the world in recent years have included SARS, MERS, Ebola, and influenza. These epidemics have caused substantial mortality, destabilized governments, and served as significant risks to economic stability and development. So what steps can we take to enhance global health security? What are the ethical considerations in responding to global pandemics?
