New book available online – Global health risk framework: governance for global health

Global health risk framework: governance for global health: workshop summary (2016) / Alison Mack, Megan R. Snair, and Eileen R. Choffnes; National Academies Press.

The presentations and discussions from the Governance for Global Health Workshop are summarised in this report.
