PANEL 2A Regional Health Security- What is Australia’s Role?
Populations in Asia Pacific region, and globally , face increasingly complex health threats, which call for stronger, locally relevant and high-qaulity health systems capable of addressing prevailing public health issues including emerging infectious diseases. The global response has included the G7-endorsed Global Health Security Agenda, while the Australian response is continuing to evolve, most recently with the launch of the Australian Government’s Indo- Pacific Centre for Health Security. This submitted panel will discuss the concept of health security, how health security investment should be shaped to strengthen public health systems, and how vulnerable communities can help shape solutions to health security threats.
