Global Health Security Consortium

The Global Health Security Consortium (GHSC) provides insight, analysis and support for leaders around the world to help them prepare for the health-security challenges of tomorrow. It is a joint initiative of the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change, the Ellison Institute for Transformative Medicine and a team of scientists at the University of Oxford.


Working together for global public health

The Global Health Security Consortium is a new kind of partnership. It’s an independent voice, informed by deep political, technical and medical expertise, to support and guide leaders on global health. Drawing on learnings from the response to Covid-19, the Global Health Security Consortium works to find pragmatic, politically viable and scalable solutions that can adapt to sudden, novel challenges. This work includes creating partnerships, guiding policy and amplifying existing solutions.



One Shot: Making preventable disease history

One Shot is a roadmap to end preventable diseases worldwide. A visionary disease-prevention programme that is “always on”, it will save millions of lives and billions of dollars, as well as work to address health inequalities, to create more prosperous, healthy and resilient societies, and to prepare for future pandemics.  The response to Covid-19 saw dramatic advancements in the development of life-saving vaccines. These changes bring an opportunity to make preventable disease history. With at least 10 million deaths a year attributable to preventable diseases, the potential rewards are huge. Now is the time to transform the global-health infrastructure. One Shot is how we do it.
