Today during the G-20 Leaders’ Summit in Antalya, Turkey, President Obama announced that the United States and 30 countries have made a commitment to work together to achieve the targets of the Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA). 

Working closely with these partners and countries around the world, we will strive to achieve a world safe and secure from infectious disease threats by building measurable, sustainable capacity to prevent, detect and rapidly respond to infectious disease threats, whether naturally occurring, accidental or deliberately spread.

 We call on all countries to make additional commitments to save lives by preventing future outbreaks from becoming epidemics.
