Global Health Security Partnership

An e-newsletter about PATH’s global health security work

The GHS Bulletin provides updates on outbreaks of global importance, news on issues in global health security, and progress in PATH’s country activities in support of the US government’s Global Health Security Agenda. PATH’s GHS project collaborates closely with the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, national governments, and partners in Senegal, Tanzania, and Vietnam to empower poor countries in preventing, detecting, and responding rapidly to infectious disease outbreaks.
