Both the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA) represent bold initiatives to address systematically gaps in previous efforts to assure that societies can be resilient when confronted with potentially overwhelming threats to health. Despite their obvious differences, and differing criticisms of both, they shift away from vertical (problem- or disease-specific) to horizontal (comprehensive) solutions. Despite the comprehensiveness of the SDGs, they lack a specific target for global health security. The GHSA focuses primarily on infectious diseases and neglects non-communicable diseases and socioeconomic drivers of health. Even though each agenda has limitations and unique challenges, they are complementary. We discuss ways to understand and implement the two agendas synergistically to hasten progress toward a more sustainable and resilient world.
Both the GHSA and the SDGs use complex and horizontal approaches to strengthen health systems and to build IHR core capacities for a sustainable world resilient against infectious disease threats. Implementation of SDGs and the GHSA is still in the early stages. Opportunities abound to influence and guide their implementation. Obstacles to achieving the goals of the GHSA and SDGs are not insurmountable, and overcoming them would be greatly facilitated by recognition of the synergy between the two agendas, rather than by assuming they must be mutually exclusive.
