In a guest post, Farley Cleghorn, global head of health; Anita Bhuyan, senior technical writer; Jabulani Nyenwa, director of health and education for the Europe, Middle East, and Africa region; and Scott Moreland, senior fellow in the data informatics and analytical solutions practice in the Americas region, all at Palladium, discuss the role of multisectoral collaboration in advancing global health security and highlight the importance of using innovative approaches to detect, prevent, contain, and respond to infectious diseases. The authors note, “With engaged communities, detection and response systems in place, and an approach that considers the capacity needs of all stakeholders, we just may be positioned to respond efficiently and effectively the next time we face a significant outbreak” (10/25).
