Asia Launch cum Seminar of the Report Recommendations of the Commission on a Global Health Risk Framework for the Future on 13 March 2016

Print

Set up by the US National Academy of Medicine in 2015 following the large-scale outbreaks of SARS, H1N1, Ebola, MERS-CoV and other emerging infectious diseases, the Commission comprises 17 members from different countries and experts in finance, governance, R&D, health systems, and social sciences. The object of the Commission is to make recommendations for an effective global architecture for recognizing and mitigating the threat of epidemic infectious diseases. The Commission’s report, released in January 2016, argued that pandemic prevention and response is essential to both national security and global economic stability—not just a matter of health. Please join the Commission representatives, and health, business, and policy leaders from across the Asia-Pacific region for an intensive discussion of reforms that could better prepare the world for infectious disease threats in the future.
