Global Health Security in China, Japan, and India

Assessing Sustainable Development Goals

How three major Asian countries approach global health security.

The COVID-19 pandemic has put a newfound emphasis on the importance of global health security: the idea that countries must coordinate their efforts globally to address pressing international public health threats while meeting their own specific domestic health care needs. Global Health Security in China, Japan, and India investigates how this approach is evolving in three major Asian countries that have committed to adhering to the international health standards and targets in accordance with United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. As this comprehensive volume demonstrates, despite having to balance cost and affordability, stakeholder demands, political ideology, and global economic pressures with decisions about how to best meet global health standards, all three countries have made significant advances in health law and policy over the past decade.
