U.S. Global Health Security Strategy 2024 Outlined

The White House has introduced the United States Government Global Health Security Strategy (GHSS) for 2024, emphasizing the need for global collaboration to achieve health security. The strategy involves the CDC’s contributions through expertise, investments, and rapid response capabilities aimed at enhancing health safety globally and domestically.

Significant health challenges like COVID-19, mpox, Ebola, and other outbreaks have stressed health systems worldwide. The GHSS outlines the CDC’s roles in rebuilding these systems, which include implementing programs, providing technical support, and using data analytics to manage health threats effectively.

The CDC’s longstanding initiatives, such as the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and the Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP), illustrate its commitment to building sustainable health systems and enhancing disease detection and response capacities globally.

Additionally, the CDC has played a pivotal role in establishing National Public Health Institutes (NPHIs) and the Global Laboratory Leadership Program (GLLP) to strengthen international health security infrastructure.

For more details, the full strategy document is available through the United States Department of State’s Global Health Security Partnerships page.
