Leadership Vital To Ensuring Global Health Security

The Lancet: MERS — the latest threat to global health security
Editorial Board

“…With new cases of Ebola still occurring in West Africa, frequent influenza epidemics worldwide, MERS (and previously SARS) adds to the infectious disease threat to global health security. As David Hui and colleagues call for in The Lancet Respiratory Medicine, we need ‘bold leadership … to generate the best evidence base for formulating effective public health, infection control, and treatment interventions required to effectively tackle these infections.’ Our global health security depends upon such leadership” (6/13).
