Health Security in the Indo-Pacific Region: Future Programming Priorities

The Indo-Pacific Centre for Health Security is currently exploring future programming priorities in health security. It is anticipated that this will build on achievements to date with a particular focus on the avoidance and containment of infectious disease threats with the potential to cause social and economic harms on a national, regional or global scale.

Roundtable discussions will provide an opportunity to reflect on Australia's investment in health security to date and to commence dialogue on future health security programming priorities for our region.
