World Health Day 2007 — “Invest in Health, Build a Safer Future”

How can we stay safe in a globalized world? Pandemics, natural disasters, chemical and nuclear accidents, climate change and its consequences, and bioterrorism all have the potential to affect international public health security. Multinational partnerships are needed to expand access to drugs and vaccines, improve public health infrastructure in developing countries, and launch better public health work force education programs worldwide.
