Learn more about legal preparedness and ways you can be involved.
Isabelle Granger, Disaster Law Coordinator and Head of Policy and Humanitarian Diplomacy at IFRC will moderate the Roundtable on Legal Preparedness Challenges at the launch.
The GHSA Legal Preparedness Action Package was established in September 2021 under the leadership of Argentina, Georgetown University's O'Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law, and the United States in response to the legal barriers countries faced in their COVID-19 response and past emergencies. The Action Package is a unique global initiative to promote legal preparedness as a critical capacity for an effective public health emergency response and strengthening global health security and to develop technical tools to help countries strengthen their legal preparedness for future public health emergencies.
