In this video, we hear from UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and German Chancellor Angela Merkel on the need to strengthen the global health and security system in the 21st century. Exploring recent public health challenges, such as the Ebola virus, in addition to historical pandemics, such as the 1918 Spanish flu, this video investigates the infectious diseases that have beleaguered mankind over the centuries and why the risk of another deadly pandemic is at the centre of current political efforts to strengthen the global health and security system. How well prepared are we for the next public health crisis and will it lead to a breakdown in law and order?
