Health and national security

National Security College | Professional course


The significant strategic impact of COVID-19 has meant health is now front of mind for many national security policy and decision makers. This three-day program aims to explore the nexus between health and national security, how global threats to human security fit with traditionally nation-centric notions of security, and the ways in which national security policy and decision makers might sensibly factor health into strategic thinking in the future.

Participants will be encouraged to take a deep dive into health—and related existential threats—as a construct of national security.

No security clearance required.
