Colin McInnes (Recipient)

Disease outbreak collaboration
Disease outbreaks threaten national and global well-being, including economic development and security, but analysis by the World Health Organisation suggested that many states are poorly equipped to deal with such outbreaks.
In late 2017, the WHO identified militaries as possessing potentially valuable resources to help improve responses to outbreaks, but also the need to develop a framework to enable collaboration between civilian health services and the military.
Over the past 12 months, Professor McInnes drafted this framework for the WHO, which will greatly improve our ability to respond to disease outbreaks across the world.
