Health emergencies around the world in recent years have included SARS, MERS, Ebola, and influenza. These episodes have led to substantial mortality, destabilize governments, and serve as significant risks to economic stability and development. So what steps can we take to enhance global health security? What are the ethical considerations in responding to global pandemics?
