Threats Beyond Borders

  • : Online

Description

 

In early 2017, the AMA called on the Government to make Australia a world leader in science, medicine, and research by establishing an Australian Centre for Disease Control (CDC).

The AMA Position Statement on an Australian Centre for Disease Control (CDC) said that there are emerging problems in controlling communicable diseases within Australia's borders, and a CDC would provide a national focus on current and emerging communicable disease threats. Diseases and health threats, and the capacity to conduct national responses, must be undertaken by an appropriately funded and staffed CDC.

Threats Beyond Borders is an interactive panel discussion on potential infectious diseases and threats, the role of a national Centre for Disease Control (CDC), current approaches to infectious disease threats, and how Australia would manage communicable threats that cross our borders.
