Over 200 delegates met in a high level partners meeting in Cape Town, South Africa to discuss Global Health Security (GHS). The meeting themed “Building Health Security Beyond Ebola”, was hosted by the World Health Organization (WHO) from 13 – 15 July 2015. The meeting opened discussions on how to prepare the world for the next outbreak. The discussions centered on developing health security, working towards an integrated response effort and establishing a continental frame work for action in terms of surveillance and resources. The Global Health Security Agenda seeks to secure the world from infectious disease threats by preventing and reducing the likelihood of outbreaks, early detection, rapid and effective response. Global Health Security can be attained through better communication, modern quarantine methods, coordination and improved capabilities for effective response.
