Global Health Security 2019

Global health security 2019 510x288

Burnet Institute’s TB Working Group will be running an MDR-TB Workshop and high-level round table meeting at Global Health Security 2019, the first international conference on global health security, in Sydney, in June.

In the wake of the 2014 West African Ebola outbreak, the international spread of Zika, the ongoing transmission of antimicrobial resistance, and the ever-present threat of another influenza pandemic, global health security has taken on a new level of importance.

The conference will bring together practitioners, researchers, educators, representatives and decision-makers across the fields of public health, medicine, veterinary science, agriculture, government, defence, international relations, sociology and anthropology to examine the progress made to date in strengthening health systems and identify the gaps and opportunities for enhancing the international community’s ability to respond more efficiently and effectively to future adverse health crises.
