Research finds epidemic and pandemic preparedness lacking

November 7, 2019

A new Global Health Security Index suggests that no country in the world is fully prepared to handle an epidemic or pandemic, according to an article on the Security website.
The GHS Index offers 33 recommendations for individual countries and for the international community. 
Recommendations include: 
• National governments should commit to take action to address health security risks
• Health security capacity in every country should be transparent and regularly measured, and results should be published at least once every two years
The GHS Index is a joint project of the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security and the Nuclear Threat Initiative.
