Business Community Support Critical To Global Health Security Agenda

Huffington Post: Global Health Security Is Vital to Our Citizens, Businesses and Economy
Betty King, former U.S. ambassador to the U.N. in Geneva

“…Recently, the U.S. government put forward a global health security agenda through a multiagency effort that includes the departments of State, Defense, Agriculture, Health and Human Services, the U.S. Agency for International Development and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. … As part of this work, I believe the U.S. government must encourage all nations to be transparent about their own assessments of preparedness to inform the international community — including businesses with investments worldwide. U.S. government commitment and support to a global health security agenda is vital, but the support of the U.S. business community is crucial to its success” (5/21).
