GloHSA defines Global Health Security as

"the collective ability to mitigate health threats that have the potential to destabilize societies, states and regions.
The goal of Global Health Security is to establish resilient health systems in order to promote peace and security for all.”

The Global Health Security Alliance is an independent network of international experts from policy, academics, security and private sectors, driven by the shared understanding that health and security issues have increasing and interrelated global impacts which require a transnational and multi-sectoral approach for mitigation. The GloHSA vision is for an effective, universal interconnection of diverse stakeholders dedicated to solving global health security challenges, particularly focused on protecting and strengthening health systems as a core function of society.

The GloHSA mission is to bridge all global health and security communities to:

Support the creation of national and transnational strategies,

Develop multi-sectoral educational and training programs,

Conduct crisis policy assessments and scientific analyses,

Fuel the international dialogue for global health security issues,

Engage in coordination and relationship-building among the global health and security communities to face the dynamic global challenges.

We are dedicated to helping safeguard the universal humanitarian values and acknowledge that every sovereign state has the need to protect its own population as a core principle of governance. The GloHSA uniquely offers key decision makers advices regarding whether an issue is related to Global Health Security or not as well as provides them with sound confidential situational analysis to help build a comprehensive decision making process whenever relevant.
