The Lancet To Advocate For Health Security In 2016

The Lancet: Health security: the defining challenge of 2016
Editorial Board

“…Whatever geopolitical uncertainty lies ahead in 2016, The Lancet will advocate for renewed scientific investment and endeavor in areas where gaps in practice, policy, and research, across clinical medicine and global health remain. We see the overriding theme uniting many of the diverse threats to human health as one of insecurity. What can one journal do to strengthen the conditions for advancing health security? 2016 will see The Lancet launch several clinical Commissions … [W]ith health security being the big idea of our time, perhaps at no other moment have the words peace and goodwill seemed so relevant” (12/19).
