Military Health System: In it together: Fighting global health threats takes partnerships
This news piece from the Military Health System Communications Office discusses the U.S. military’s commitment “to advancing the Global Health Security Agenda, recognizing the need for collaboration across sectors, governments, and areas of expertise.” The piece summarizes comments made by Thomas McCaffery, acting assistant secretary of defense for health affairs, at the 2018 Medical Support Operations Conference in London. The article states, “‘[O]ur ability to work in a concerted global effort across … nations, the private sector, academia, and non-governmental organizations is not just smart leadership. It’s a strategic, moral imperative,’ said McCaffery, stressing the impact of health threats on economic stability, food security, development, and private-sector growth” (4/12).
