    Global health security: A Short communication

    Alexander Birbrair*

    “Global health security” is three simple words, but they contain so much meaning. A century of modern scientific studies on infectious diseases such as yellow fever, malaria, and, most recently Zika virus are continuing. SARS and swine flu served as a wake-up call, with viruses crossing species barriers with dramatic consequences. The Ebola outbreak in West Africa has galvanised the WHO, the international NGO and donor community, as well as countries. The threat of new and re-emerging infectious diseases most of them are zoonotic.
