Abstract

This article describes the concept of global health security and its development over time. It emphasizes the need to control challenges against global health such as those produced by biologic agents both natural and intentional. It presents world initiatives that have developed during the last two decades and the contribution of Peru to the Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA) and the Monitoring and Evaluation Framework. In order to accelerate the implementation of the International Health Regulations Peru has played an important role to accelerate the implementation of International Health Regulations (IHR), participating with a group of countries, World Health Organization (WHO), and GHSA in the creation of the Joint External Evaluation Tool (JEE).
